"When her uncle died, Maria had no idea what would become of her. She dreaded being sent away to school , but it seemed that there was nowhere else to go. When a distant, elderly relative arrived from Italy to settle her uncle's estate, Maria suddenly found herself with a new guardian and a new home in a foreign land. At first she hated Italy, where it always seemed to rain, but when she arrived at her relative's villa outside of Florence and met the energetic Cordelia, the situation began to change at once. If it had not been for Cordelia, Maria would never have ventured beyond the garden of the villa and then she would never have visited the little town at the foot of the hill, nor would she have ever seen the wonderful painting that was to mean so much..."
