I loved this book. I'd never read anything by Dunant, but had heard of The Red Tent; thought I'd read an earlier work first. I felt completely immersed in Florentine culture. Interesting characters, gripping first chapter that keeps you turning pages, colorful - though you're only reading black and white pages, I was left with this vision of color - probably because the father is a dyer? - Overall I really enjoyed reading this historical novel. Lot's of fun, and I'm looking forward to reading more of Dunant.
