The book, which weaves romance with a murder mystery, follows a portrait painter who is forced to flee his native Scotland in 1794. After arriving in Boston, he takes on a young apprentice whose looks are deceiving. In this Meet the Author, Kamensky and Lepore read from the book and talk about the collaborative writing process.
