Summary
"Margot Harrington is an American volunteer, an expert at book conservancy. While struggling to save a waterlogged convent library, she discovers a fabulous collection of sixteen erotic drawings by Giulio Romano that accompany sixteen of Pietro Aretino's steamy sonnets. When it was published over four centuries ago, the Vatican mandated that all copies be destroyed. Only this volume remains. The abbess begs Margot to save the abbey's finances by secretly selling the magnificently illustrated erotica--but the bishop who oversees the abbey must never know. Margot's other clandestine project is an Italian artist attempting radical measures to save endangered frescoes. She is 29 and available; he, older and married. He shares her sense of mission, then her bed in this ambrosial story of spiritual longing and earthly desire"--
Summary
In 1966, Margot Harrington, a book conservator, goes to Florence to help after the Arno River floods, and when she finds a rare manuscript of erotica in a convent, the mother superior wants to sell it to raise money for their library
