The Virgin Knows by Christine Palamidessi Moore. First off, any book that has a picture of Madonna and child on the cover, gets points with me. I immediately looked up the artist (Pietro Perugino) and the current location (Galleria Borghese, Rome) so that I could do a little armchair travelling and art appreciation. That done, I settled into the book. It is an entertaining and interesting world Moore has placed between the covers of her novel. Though the pace was occasionally uneven, it was highly entertaining.
