This review is from: His Last Duchess (Paperback)
This book is excellent. It should be a best seller. I think it holds up against writers such as Phillipa Gregory.
The plot holds you and is fast paced, whilst giving a good idea of the life of a woman living in Italy at that time.
You hope it will come out all right in the end - but will it, how can it? There is more than one plot and the story interweaves. I cant remember now because i read it too fast. So i am going to have to re-read it soon. I hardly ever re-read books - so theres a recommendation for you.
Give this book a try - i was not interested in history/romances before i read The other Boleyn Girl. But there is so much more to these types of books than history, but what history there is brings it to life in a way i never understood it before. Now i know thats been said many times before but its so true.
Its a different world so try it if you like Sci fi also, or time travel. Well there you are it can appeal to all, those who like biographies too.
I will be actively seeking out this writers 2 other books.

I read this book two years ago and can't remember a thing about it which is rare for me! I was glad to know that I am not the only one who will have to re-read it because now that I know more about the period I am more interested. I loved the cover.
