A very interesting story about the possible life of Lucrezia, since she apparently left nothing in writing for us to know what her personal life was like. It's too bad that each time she found happiness that happiness was spoiled by her father the pope and her brother; both claiming to love her. I enjoyed reading the story of Lucrezia Borgia. It was also an eye opener of the way politics and favors can buy one a throne of power.
A first novel about an infamous woman of the title Lucrezia Borgia, John Faunce brings her life and times into startling reality. Talk about your dysfunctional family, the Borgia's take top billing. The decadence of life in and near the Vatican at a time when the Mother Church was most corrupt, the reader will be mesmerized by this excellent piece of historical fiction.
