9780140097115: What's Bred in the Bone (Cornish Trilogy)

Francis Cornish was always good at keeping secrets. From the well-hidden family secret of his childhood to his mysterious encounters with a small-town embalmer, an expert art restorer, a Bavarian countess, and various masters of espionage, the events in Francis’s life were not always what they seemed.

In this wonderfully ingenious portrait of an art expert and collector of international renown, Robertson Davies has created a spellbinding tale of artistic triumph and heroic deceit. In this second book of the Cornish Trilogy, Davies spins a tale told in stylish, elegant prose, endowed with lavish portions of his wit and wisdom. 

"A deliciously readable story...An altogether remarkable creation, his most accomplished novel to date." --   The New York Times

Product Description:

At once ingenious and powerful, What's Bred in the Bone holds the usual rich mixture of Davies' delights.
