Start with a shy young boy artist. Enter a old artist-nun, a beautiful young girl, a new cathedral and an amazing discovery. Set this all down in New Zealand and what do you get? This wonderful book. Danny Mago is just a shy young 10th-grader who loves art. He gets hired at the local convent, and the mother-superior (Mother Madeline), a famous artist, takes him under her wing. He makes an amazing discovery in the convent gardens, which leads him to many new ideas for his paintings. He makes friends with a beautiful new girl in his class, Zelia, who is working on solving a puzzle that her family has tried to solve for years. Through many twists and turns of the story, Danny and Zelia become even closer as they solve the puzzle of the Mandylion.
