1478: Gianetta and Matteo have a happy life, working in service to the wealthy

Rosini family. They are used to entertaining rich and powerful members of

Florentine society in Palazzo Rosini, where Lorenzo and Giuliano de' Medici

and Botticelli are regular visitors. Even when the Medici brothers narrowly

escape the Palazzo with their lives (an accident, surely?), Gianetta and Matteo

can't imagine that the growing unrest in the streets of Florence would ever

spoil their happiness.

When a bloody conspiracy erupts in the heart of Florence, in the city's

beloved Duomo, nobody is left unaffected by the aftermath. When the family

hear that Matteo is among the conspirators, Gianetta knows that her life will

never be the same.

Curation and "Why Don't You Carry..."

Illume is an experience for readers that's meant to showcase a careful selection of titles much in the same way an art gallery would display an exhibition.

Titles are always shown "cover forward", and our inventory rotates to reflect current reader interests, shifting topics, and obscure finds. That said, we LOVE recommendations! Let us know what you're looking for, or what your favorite reads are. You may find them on the shelves soon!
