Donna Jo Napoli - A ​mosoly
Vajon ​ki lehetett az a nő, akit Leonardo da Vinci leghíresebb festménye, a Mona Lisa ábrázol? A 15. századi Firenzében játszódó regény életre kelti a híres festményt. A történelmi pontossággal megírt és izgalmas részletekben bővelkedő történet a rejtélyes mosoly mögé bújt nő életét beszéli el. A tizenöt éves Monna Elisabetta, egy gazdag selyemhernyó-tenyésztő lánya gondtalanul él szülei házában. Szerelemről, házasságról ábrándozik, bár tudja, hogy az élet nem lesz kegyes hozzá, és ahhoz az emberhez kell majd feleségül mennie, akit a szülei választanak neki. A család barátja, Leonardo da Vinci, akit Lisa elbűvöl a mosolyával, elviszi a Medici-palotába, ahol bemutatja az ifjú örökösnek, Giulianónak. A két fiatal között szerelem lobban, ám a sors elszakítja őket egymástól.

Donna Jo Napoli - Daughter ​of Venice
In ​1592, Donata is a noble girl living in a palazzo on the Grand Canal. Girls of her class receive no education and rarely leave the palazzo. In a noble family, only one daughter and one son will be allowed to marry; Donata, like all younger daughters, will be sent to a convent. Donata longs to be tutored like her brothers and to see the Venice she has glimpsed only on the map. What is the world beyond her balcony, beyond what she sees when she glides, veiled, in a gondola down the canal? She dresses as a boy and escapes the palazzo on the Grand Canal to see the world before she is shut away, and to try to find a way to escape her fate. Donata risks everything; she changes her life, and her family’s life, forever when she walks through the door and encounters a Venice she never knew existed.
