    The long-anticipated ending to a great historical

    The long-anticipated ending to a great historical fiction series. The author follows both a female master painter in the early 1500’s and the modern art historian who is chasing evidence of her life. It beautifully depicts the modern world of art academia, art research, preservation and restoration, as well as every level of society inhabiting the area of interest in the early 1500’s. Both stories hold your interest throughout the series. Zari is an art historian who discovered a previously unknown female old master painter. Since that time, she has been practically obsessed with proving her historical validity and identifying more of her work. When a colleague very publicly rebutted her claim, instead claiming Mira’s painting to be the work of a well-known male old master, Zari jumped at a reason to leave Europe to aid her mother after she’d had an accident. She kept Mira alive on social media, but now it was time to get back to her search. Will Zari be able to gather enough proof to support her claims? Will her return to Europe rekindle her relationship with Will, who she met on her first trip to Amsterdam? In 1505, Mira and her husband, Arnoud, are moving to Bayonne, where Arnaud has a position waiting with the Cabinet Makers Guild, a long and perilous journey, especially for the pregnant Mira. Mira grew up hidden away in a convent. No girls born to her family had been allowed to live in the past hundred years. When her mother gave birth to twins, she kept her son and had Mira smuggled out and taken to the convent. Years later, when her father discovered her existence, he ordered her death. At the start of their journey to Bayonne, Mira’s twin showed up searching for her. Fearing he was there to fulfill their father’s wishes, Arnaud led him away to protect Mira. As dangerous as is travel for a lone woman, Mira had no choice but to continue. Mira is exhausted from her months of travel, and worried about Arnoud. Will this couple ever reach their journey’s end? When will they once again be united? Arnoud has assurance of employment in Bayonne, but will Mira be able to establish herself as a portrait painter with no recommendation of her own? I was gifted a copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Beautiful end to the Series!

    The final installment of a historical trilogy with a dual timeline reminiscent of books by Susanna Kearsley or Diana Gabaldon. This book hooks you immediately and keeps you reading way past bedtime. A Place in the World can be read as a standalone book, but I highly recommend starting with the prequel and reading them in order. I love books with strong female characters and rich historical details and this book delivers on both fronts. I received an advanced copy of this book, but I had purchased and read the previous books and would happily purchase this one as well.
