Summary:

Giulia burns with a passion to paint so intense she hears colors sing. Forced into the Convent of Santa Marta against her will, she dreamt of escape until her artistic gifts caught fire in the painting workshop of Maestra Humilità. But now Humilità is dead. And the new Maestra threatens to bar Giulia from painting—forever. Faced with the prospect of a life without art, Giulia is seized by a desperate idea: What if she disguises herself as a boy? Could she make her way to Venice and find work as an artist’s apprentice? Along with the truth of who she is, Giulia carries more dangerous secrets: the exquisite voices of her paint colors and the prized formula for Humilità’s Passion blue. And Venice, with its gilded palazzos and masked balls, has secrets of its own. Trapped in her false identity in this place where ambition and deception hover like a dense fog, can Giulia find her way?
