I have no doubt this book is well researched. However, the writing style left much to be desired. Many paragraphs were composed of lists of family members and their relationships to each other. There wasn't enough description of events and the period to keep me interested. Consulter l'avis complet

This is a well researched, interesting look at the life of one of history's most misunderstood women. The detail about the period adds richness and colour. The book ends a bit abruptly with Lucrezia's death, but it's still a good read for all that. Consulter l'avis complet
