“Probes the myriad layers of meaning in art, the human soul, and ultimately the world itself.” —Annie Dillard
This is a new, thoroughly revised edition of the author’s debut novel which was first published to critical acclaim over 14 years ago. Readers of Suzanne’s fiction, prose, essays, and blogposts will welcome the introduction to this work, now back in print.
Rachel Piers, a brilliant young conservatrice at a Manhattan art gallery, is given the dream assignment of restoring a mysterious medieval painting in a church in Rome. She seizes the opportunity to advance her career in one of the most inspiring and romantic cities in the world, leaves behind a bitter divorce and painful childhood incident. As Rachel meticulously restores the damaged artwork, she uncovers layers of her soul that she would rather be kept hidden. Written in descriptively sumptuous prose, Unveiling brings the ancient city of Rome vividly to life and reveals a courageous woman coming to terms with a tragic past.
