Summary
HISTORICAL FICTION. The Riveting Sequel to The House of Medici: Inheritance of Power. Lucrezia Tornabuoni, brought up in the Palazzo Medici alongside Cosimo's children, always expected to marry his charismatic younger son, Giovanni. But now in later life, she finds herself imprisoned in a loveless marriage with the gout-ridden elder son, Piero.

Her difficulty is that in the closed society of Florence, there is no-one she can confide in
