His journey, from rough sketches to the finished product from the hands of the Brussels family of weavers, is the story. That, and his endless seductions, some of which don't turn out well. While Nicholas searches for easy conquest, this is at heart a love story, but not always about people and not always with that HEA (Happily Ever After). But then HEA is a modern idea, and would've been scoffed at in 1492, when the story wraps up. Rich, detailed, compelling, this is a great read for those who enjoy historical novels with factual underpinnings. It's a 4.
