I enjoyed this book and found the aspects of restoring and conserving books and painting fascinating. However, the ending was disappointing. The mystery buyer of the Aretina was never revealed. I wanted it to be Sandro's wife—a condition of his returning to her, but if not that, at least some explanation.
