Journal Entry 2 by grubsneerg from Greensburg, Pennsylvania USA on Thursday, November 27, 2008
From the opening pages that detail the death of an elderly nun, to the end, this book kept my attention. I felt like I was in Florence in the late 13th and early 14th centuries with Alessandra. The history and politics were skillfully woven into the story, and having seen some of the magnificent frescoes in Tuscany in person made the author's descriptions seem that much more alive for me.

Left on the statue in the lower parking lot before going inside to hear Niece No. 2's choir sing.

After going through the Museum of American Art in Westmoreland, PA, I found the book at the foot of the statue in front of the museum. At first I thought it was lost but after reading the ribbon on the book, it looked interesting and I wanted to be part of the chain of readers. After I complete my finals, I plan to read the book during my semester break. Thanks!
