Sarah Dunant's first historical novel brings Florence to life at the beginning of the Renaissance. It is a story of love, art, religion, and power, told through the passionate voice of Alessandra. Jenny Sterlin succeeds with a compelling performance that gives both family members and religious figureheads memorable individuality. Listeners may need to check that there is truly just one narrator. Sterlin invokes excitement in hushed tones and invites one to reflect on poignant moments. Both Dunant and Sterlin catch the excitement of this important period in history. R.S.E. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
