The listener is lucky to be in the capable hands of a great narrator to sort through the wealth of information and dense historical details of Renaissance Italy. Forget the titillating rumors you've heard about the Borgia family—the truth is far worse! Lucrezia’s brother was the basis for Machiavelli's PRINCE, and her father was pope at a time when that job came with unlimited power. Yet Lucrezia still shines as a strong-willed, compassionate woman who bucked the odds, and with her brains and charm wove her way through one land mine after another to be happy and successful in her own right. Lorner Raver's calm delivery is ideal as she guides the listener through one of the darkest times in history. D.G. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2009]
