A lovely book, the rich atmosphere of the 15th century is eloquently woven, the deep tone and imagery conjoured up by the author with her characters feels so genuine, I feel like I was actually there....

I loved this book - it transported me back to 15th century England, to the atmosphere and way of life at that time, incidentally increasing my understanding of some of the religious and political issues of the time - it has been well researched. The main characters were as intriguing and exasperating as only real people can be and the journey I took with them was full of surprises, some pleasant some not. As such `Through an Icon's Eyes' is not a comfort read, it kept me `on the edge of my seat' right to the very unpredictable end - somebody, please make this into a film!

I took this on holiday to a Greek Island overlooking a small monastery, which provided the perfect setting for this intriguing story. The language was masterful in transporting me back through time, and the characters and plot were both compelling. Extremely well researched, informative and highly recommended.

HASH(0x8d73715c) out of 5 stars An incredible novel I couldn't put down! 23 Nov. 2011
By The Curious Dame - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I get very, very excited when I discover a novel, so wonderful, so enjoyable, that I include it on my list of lifetime favourites. Set in the 15th century in an ancient abbey, Through an Icon's Eyes by Grace Conte fits that bill exactly!

This is a beautifully written story, so engaging, so engrossing, I could not put it down. One of the main characters is a partially-completed icon of Mary Magdalene who comes alive in the painter's mind acting almost as a conscience for him - guiding, questioning, enlightening. Bit by bit, the story spirals into spectacular events of heresy, murder, lust, and betrayal that culminate into an utterly satisfying, completely shocking ending. Extremely real, three dimensional characters that are ever evolving enchanted me from the very first page. Each page is ripe with wisdom, teases with mystery, and swirls the reader into a hurricane of emotions.

Grace Conti is extremely talented and the beauty of her prose is a joy to read. The author is donating all the proceeds to breast cancer research until Christmas 2011. That in itself makes it worth buying and I encourage everyone to do so. Better yet, the book would make a wonderful gift. Brilliant from start to finish - you must read this book.
HASH(0x8d6b1d74) out of 5 stars An excellent first book 20 Aug. 2011
By Norma-Jean - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I've just finished reading "Through an Icon's Eyes".

It is a very intelligent book. I found the discourse on religion as it was viewed in the 15th century, while interesting, kept the pace a bit slow at first but it put the story in context and, before I reached the second half of the book, I was captured. The pace quickened and the subject matter became broader and more controversial. The icon content gave the story an unusual twist that kept me wondering where the story would go next and I was reluctant to put the book down until I reached the surprising conclusion.

I look forward to the next Grace Conti book.
HASH(0x8d95dab0) out of 5 stars A really brlliant first novel - a "must read"! 9 Nov. 2011
By Bob Olivier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Through an Icons Eyes is a beautifully written novel.

It has complex characterization, a fascinating story with a brilliant twist at the end. Just read the opening pages to get your pulse racing. A bit slow in the latter stages of part 1, it opens up in part two and is enthralling.

It's a thriller, a love story - a brilliant piece of work by Ms Conti.

Highly recommended. Bob Olivier, Sydney, Australia

I was transported by this book to old England, Italy and Greece. I found the writing style appropriate for the era yet easy to read. The little images inserted through out the book were like little pictures added seamlessly. The storey is presented as something of a puzzle with pieces slowly falling into place. I could not put it down. This is a must read book.
HASH(0x8d40b39c) out of 5 stars It could use a good edit. 8 Dec. 2011
By DW Ward - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
While the storyline has potential, the timeline is confusing, and the punctuation is distracting. I think that, with the help of a good editor, this book could be great.
