Raphael: Painter in Rome by Stephanie Story
Orphaned at the age of eleven, Renaissance painter Raphael is determined to keep the deathbed promise he made to his father: to become history’s greatest artist. As he strives toward perfection, he battles internal demons: his desperate ambition, crippling fear of imperfection, and unshakable loneliness, all the while conspiring with cardinals and falling in love with a baker’s-daughter-turned-prostitute who becomes his muse.
