Complicated period of history.,

This review is from: The Deadly Sisterhood: A story of Women, Power and Intrigue in the Italian Renaissance (Paperback)
I so enjoyed Leonie Frieda's first book Catharine De Medici, the story flowed, that I had been watching to see if she would write a second book. Maybe I found the first one such an easy read because I had read about Catharine before. My knowledge of Italien history being limited most of the women in this book were completely new to me. It was interesting but hard work. I think rereading it, at a later date, would be a good idea and I would probably get more enjoyment from it. Please don't be put off reading it as you will find out how society worked during the Italian Renaissance and the place of women in society.
