The wonderful new novel from the much loved author of Girl with a Pearl Earring and Falling Angels. The Lady and the Unicorn tapestries are a set of six medieval tapestries. Beautiful, intricate and expertly made, they are also mysterious in their origin and meaning.
'A beautifully written tale, I could not put it down...an exquisite, moving and convincing story, drawing realistic and rounded characters who each tell their aspect of the tale. The theme of the five senses is woven into the plot so cleverly that our perception of the novel is sharpened...This is not just a novel about the creation of a work of art, but a tale of ambition, lust, betrayal and heartbreak...a compelling and enormously enjoyable work.' Evening Standard'The Lady and the Unicorn will perhaps eclipse Pearl Earring.' Guardian
