The year is 1526. Hans Holbein is at the beginning of his remarkable career when he travels to England to stay with Sir Thomas More. As a guest in the splendid More household, Holbein begins to paint their first family portrait. Little could he know that in a few short years the family, Tudor society and England itself would have changed beyond recognition. Two men find themselves irresistibly attracted to More's foster daughter, Meg. One of them is John Clement, a man of compelling presence and mysterious background. The other is Holbein himself - warm, ebullient, radical and foreign. Meg will find herself powerfully drawn to these two wildly contrasting men. She will love one, and marry the other.

Praise for 'Portrait of an Unknown Woman': 'Bennett's background detail is impeccable - part love story, part thriller, all excellently imagined and written.' The Times 'There is plenty to admire and enjoy in Bennett's portrayal of a society convulsed by radical change...Vanora Bennett is a writer to watch.' Times Literary Supplement 'There is much to admire in this curate's egg of a novel.' Sunday Telegraph 'Distinguished...Romance, intrigue and art history are confidently blended, and Holbein canvases are afforded starring roles.' Daily Mail 'If you want a classier-than-average romantic read, one contender is this fine historiccal debut, a 'Girl with a Pearl Earring'-style tale.' Sunday Times 'An atmospheric, passionate novel set against a backdrop of religious and political upheaval.' Woman and Home
