A Renaissance-era woman artist and an American scholar. Linked by a 500-year-old mystery...

The secrets of the past are irresistible - and dangerous.

1500: Born during a time wracked by war and plague, Renaissance-era artist Mira grows up in a Pyrenees convent believing she is an orphan. When tragedy strikes, Mira learns the devastating truth about her own origins. But does she have the strength to face those who would destroy her?

2015: Centuries later, art scholar Zari unearths traces of a mysterious young woman named Mira in two 16th-century portraits. Obsessed, Zari tracks Mira through the great cities of Europe to the pilgrim’s route of Camino de Santiago - and is stunned by what she finds. Will her discovery be enough to bring Mira’s story to life?

A powerful story and an intriguing mystery, The Girl from Oto is an unforgettable novel of obsession, passion, and human resilience.

A fabulous book brought dramatically to life

The Girl from Oto is a rich and absorbing dual timeline story that takes place in both medieval and current times. Meg Price's brilliant narration brings this book so much to life that there were times I became completely lost in the story. Evoking a time and place that is lost to readers, the audio version of Ms Maroney's book dramatises her fabulously crafted plot with superb audio, easily discernible characters and beautifully paced storytelling. A rich and complex novel, the audio version is clear and memorable, and distinguishes the cast of characters through clever and delicate use of nuanced accents. One of the most fascinating and evocative audio books I have ever heard, and one that I look forward to returning to, over and over. Highly recommend.

Loved the book, but the narrator was entirely inappropriate

This is a wonderful story, but the narrator was maddening. The accents for the different characters were terrible and she miss pronounced many words.
For non Americans the accent can sometimes feel very inappropriate and pretty irritating. I finished it cos the story and writing were great. Now I’m wondering whether I can cope with the same narrator for the second book which I really want to listen to.
I enjoy mystery books which pass between 2 different centuries. There was lots about the natural world in this one , and being an artist myself I loved the theme and the treasures found beneath layers of paint.
