Spurned by his tutor, he is sent by his despairing father to Florence as an apprentice. Under the guiding hand of Verrocchio, the master sculptor, he begins to make his name. But success requires sacrifice- Florence demands a level of conformity impossible for him.

Forced to leave, Leonardo places himself at the service of the charismatic, power-thirsty Duke of Milan. His journey leads him back to Lisa and the portrait he has waited so long to paint, the culmination of his lifes work.From the glittering court of the Medici to the mortuaries of Milan and the battlefields of the Po valley, Lucille Turners powerful novel vividly imagines Leonardos lonely struggle to convince others of his vision of the world.
