KIRKUS REVIEW

A novelized chapter of history, this story of the shortlived house of Bentivoglio in Bologna, their rise during the Renaissance to fabulous power centralized in the hands of Ginevra, the wife of Giovanni Bentivoglio. Political and diplomatic intrigue -- which deludes the Borgias -- brings them wealth and influence, only to lose all when they come under the condemnation of Pope Julius II. Vivid picture of the Renaissance as well as a dramatic story.
