Love That Moves the Sun: Discovering the Passionate and Challenging Life of Vittoria Colonna & Her Relationship with Michelangelo Buonarroti
Where does the idea for a novel about the Renaissance come from? How does an author nurture that idea, explore its historical setting, and weave a compelling story that both honors what is known and imagines what might have been?
Linda Cardillo, the award-winning author of fiction that explores the search for connection and belonging, will present the journey (both physical and metaphorical) she undertook in creating her latest novel, Love That Moves the Sun.
Set in turbulent 16th-century Italy, the book has been described by Kirkus Reviews as “a sweeping historical epic and a sensitively observed exploration of the passionate friendship between [Vittoria] Colonna and Michelangelo . . . . A stirring and emotionally resonant portrait of a pivotal relationship in the life of Michelangelo.”
In addition to being named a Kirkus Indie Best Book, Love That Moves the Sun is the winner of the NYC Big Book award for historical fiction and a finalist for the Foreword Indies Book of the Year.
