5.0 out of 5 stars compelling heroine, alluring city, 2 Mar. 2006
This review is from: The Pope's Daughter (Paperback)
I found this story about Felice della Rovere completely compelling. It really succeeds at providing a portrait of a feisty and determined woman, amazingly so for her time and it’s quite remarkable how long it has taken for her to be rediscovered. The world in which she lives also comes through really well. You get a tremendous sense of Rome's magnificence, but also its human scale. The short chapters allow you to read a bit at a time, especially helpful if you haven’t time to read a lot at one sitting, and I liked that each chapter heading is accompanied by a drawing or print from the period, which adds to the picture of life in Renaissance Rome. Highly recommended.
