The second novel by wonderful new author, Alyssa Palombo, is as good as her first offering The Violinist of Venice.
The Most beautiful woman in Venice takes a headlong dive into Florentine society in the late 1400's. The subject of this spellbinding novel is Sandro Botticelli, the artist of the Birth of Venus, among many other wonderful paintings. A beautifully crafted book, the characters are strong and the author brings them to life with ease. She has researched this tale with great care, and relates the moving love story with an involving passion.
Just the book to take along on a Winter break, in fact why not take her earlier book too? Well worth it!
