What the judges of The International Rubery Book Award said about
The Restorer:

    "First Prize
    The Restorer by Daniela Murphy
    Historical Fiction"

    "A beautifully presented book in hardback and consistently well
    set out. The story was measured, detailed and well paced. Murphy
    has a fluid style and knows her subject. She is clearly familiar
    with the region of Florence from both a historical and
    geographical perspective and also has a deep and intimate
    knowledge of the business of restoring wall paintings. She makes
    good and imaginative use of both past and present tenses and
    switches effectively between first and third person narrations.
    There was some beautiful writing in this novel and lovingly
    careful presentation."
