MEDIA REVIEWS
"THE COMPETITION is a page-turning, provocative romp through a fascinating time and place-15th-century Florence. Donna Russo Morin has given us a novel for our time, a book featuring strong female characters fighting the odds to break the "glass ceiling," and reminding us that this battle is not new: women have been waging it for centuries. -Sherry Jones, author of The Sharp Hook of Love: A Novel of Heloise and Abelard

"...a page-turner unlike any historical novel, weaving passion, adventure, artistic rebirth, and consequences of ambition...a masterful writer at the peak of her craft."-C. W. Gortner, author of The Confessions of Catherine de'Medici

"A 15th-century Florence of exquisite art, sensual passion and sudden, remorseless violence comes vividly to life in Donna Russo Morin's new novel."-Nancy Bilyeau, author of The Crown

"In Portrait of a Conspiracy, Russo Morin's rich detailing transports the reader to the heart of Renaissance Italy from the first page."-Heather Webb, author of Becoming Josephine

"Illicit plots, mysterious paintings, and a young Leonardo da Vinci all have their part to play in this delicious, heart-pounding tale."-Kate Quinn, author of The Empress of Rome Saga

"In elegant prose, Morin paints a captivating tale of courageous women painters who battle against prejudices in Renaissance Florence. Featuring strong women characters, each with distinctive personalities, this is exactly the type of historical novel I enjoy. Exhilarating and compassionate, The Competition sings a beautiful tribute of women's talents and underscores Morin's masterful storytelling. Delightful!"-Weina Dai Randel, author of The Moon in the Palace and The Empress of Bright Moon

"An inspiring tale of determined women, empowered by undeniable talent, in the male-dominated art world of Renaissance Florence. In The Competition, Ms. Morin delivers a captivating story rich with historical detail and beautifully woven through with atmosphere."-Diane Haeger, author of Courtesan
