AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR WRITES MICHELANGELO’S LOVE IN NEW HISTORICAL FICTION LISTEN to today's conversation with Linda Cardillo!

Longmeadow, MA –Award-winning author Linda Cardillo takes readers into the heart of turbulent 16th-century Italy in “Love That Moves the Sun: Vittoria Colonna and Michelangelo Buonarroti.” Vittoria Colonna is a celebrated poet; dutiful daughter; adoring, yet betrayed, wife; powerful political voice; spiritual seeker and suspected heretic. She is also the only woman Michelangelo ever loved. Vittoria, whose longing is buried beneath her grief, ignites the spirit of the artist Michelangelo and challenges him with both the profound terror and fierce beauty of love.


Linda Cardillo is an award-winning author who writes about the old country and the new, the tangle and embrace of family, and finding courage in the midst of loss. Hailed by Publishers Weekly as a “Fresh Face,” Linda has authored nine books, including “The Boat House Café,” winner of a Goethe Award, and the Maggie Award-winning “Dancing on Sunday Afternoons.”
