The Keeper of Lost Art

During World War II, Stella makes an unbreakable connection with a boy sheltering in her family's Tuscan villa, while the treasures of the Uffizi Galleries are hidden inside. A beautiful and important story about coming of age in wartime and the power of art to bring hope in times of darkness.


Tuscany, 1943. Twelve-year-old Stella is coming of age in a world at war. When her mother sends her to safety with distant relatives at a villa in Tuscany, she finds them tasked with a great responsibility: hiding over 300 priceless masterpieces from the Uffizi Galleries.

With the arrival of German troops imminent, Stella finds herself a stranger in her aunt and uncle's villa; and she struggles to understand why her aunt doesn't like her. She knows it has something to do with the mystery of her father, who has been largely absent from her life. 

When refugees come looking for shelter, Stella befriends Sandro, an orphaned boy with a remarkable artistic talent. For Stella and Sandro, the art hidden in the villa becomes a comfort, a refuge from the threats and uncertainties outside the villa. As German troops requisition the villa, Stella and Sandro must make a decision that puts the fate of the Uffizi's treasures--and their own lives--in the crosshairs.

Inspired by the true story of the heroic efforts to safeguard Italy's cultural treasures during World War II, THE KEEPER OF LOST ART is a sweeping and emotionally powerful tale of love, loss, and the resilience of the human spirit in the face of adversity.

From the USA Today bestselling author of The Night Portrait and The Last Masterpiece comes a gorgeously crafted, immersive coming-of-age-in-wartime story.
