From the bestselling author of Girl with a Pearl Earring comes a historical tale of love, sex and revenge.
Keen to demonstrate his new-found favour with the King, rising nobleman Jean Le Viste commissions six tapestries to adorn the walls of his chteau. He expects soldiers and bloody battlefields. But artist Nicolas des Innocents instead designs a seductive world of women, unicorns and flowers, using as his muses Le Viste’s wife Genevive and ripe young daughter Claude. In Belgium, as his designs spring to life under the weavers’ fingers, Nicolas is inspired once more by the master weaver’s daughter Alinor and her mother Christine. They too will be captured in his threads.
