Mystery set in renaissance italy-Florence? i Name that Book (april 2012)

Recensioner

This historical fiction novel is notable to me for not reading 21st century feminism onto the past, as unfortunately many historical fiction women's stories tend to do. In too many of the latter kind of novel, the author portrays heroines who break out of the mold of their time, have a free-thinking and independent mind, and fight against stereotypes to do what they want. Here, Alessandra is fully a woman of her time, and thus more realistic than other such heroines. She believes in G-d and heaven and hell, and while she does complain about the restraints that lock her into her time and place and social restrictions, she is smart enough to know how to act within them to achieve her ends. Thank you to the author for creating a realistic woman of her time and place.… (mer)
