In alternating chapters, four talented narrators provide dramatically different performances as they recount the story of a portrait painted in 1492 and its subsequent theft and recovery during WWII. Reba Buhr captures the youthful innocence and naïveté of Cecilia, mistress of the Duke of Milan, and also brings many other supporting characters from that period to life. Christa Lewis gives German accents and serious tones to Edith, a German art conservator, and her museum colleagues as well as to soldiers. P.J. Ochlan captures the tough-guy attitudes of Dominic and his fellow American soldiers who are tasked with protecting the legendary monuments men in their quest to recover art stolen by the Nazis. And lastly, Paul Woodson gives Leonardo da Vinci a scholarly and somber air as he describes his commission to paint Cecilia, "Lady with an Ermine."
