Lioness of Boston: A Novel
This historical fiction novel is an imaginative portrayal of the life of American art collector Isabella Stewart Gardner. By the time Isabella opened her Italian palazzo-style home as a museum in 1903 to showcase her collection of old masters, antiques, and objects d’art, she was already well known for scandalizing Boston’s upper society. After two devasting tragedies, Isabella, determined to live life on her own terms, found the courage to discover her spirit and shattered expectations.
