As the tides of history turned, it was her extraordinary talent that would carry her through an unraveling society turned to war, and make her a target even as it saved her, allowing her to move to Bologna—though Italy was not the haven her family had hoped, and further heartache awaited. What became of Ada? How is she connected to the conflicting land deeds of a small Italian villa? As they dig through the layers of lies, corruption, and human evil, Catherine and Liam uncover an unfinished story of heart, redemption, and hope—the ending of which is yet to be written.

nterest in children's drawings is contemporary with the birth of modern psychology but as yet there is no psychological theory that successfully accounts for the nature of children's drawing. The two main theories, visual realism and intellectual realism, fall short. The work of Georges-Henri Luquet is important because it goes beyond both theories. Luquet's work, though important and of interest to developmental psychologists, remains untranslated to date and so is often inaccurately cited. This translation of Le Dessin Enfantin makes Luquet's ideas available to a wider readership for the first time.
