This is an elegantly written tale of life in 17th Century Florence, where the repressive might of the Inquisition meets the intellects of those who would encourage wider knowledge. Former MP Bob Marshall-Andrews writes in a very entertaining style that's full of wit and charm. A gentle read that left me sad I'd finished and therefore wouldn't have the joy of a first reading again.

If I had one small criticism it would be that that the ending flashes upon us as though the author has suddenly discovered he's got a deadline to meet, but that aside, this little book is a gem.
