Florence, the 1560s. Lucrezia, third daughter of C osimo de' Medici, is free to wander the
palazzo at will, wondering at its treasures and observing its clandestine workings. But
when her older sister dies on the eve of marriage to Alfonso d'Este, ruler of Ferrara,
Modena and Reggio, Lucrezia is thrust unwittingly into the limelight: the duke is quick to
request her hand in marriage, and her father to accept on her behalf.
Having barely left girlhood, Lucrezia must now make her way in a troubled court whose
customs are opaque and where her arrival is not universally welcomed. Perhaps most
mystifying of all is her husband himself, Alfonso. Is he the playful sophisticate her
appears before their wedding, the aesthete happiest in the company of artists and
musicians, or the ruthless politician before whom even his formidable sisters seem to
tremble?
As Lucrezia sits in uncomfortable finery for the painting which is to preserve her image for
centuries to come, one thing becomes worryingly clear. In the court's eyes, she has one
duty: to provide the heir who will shore up the future of the Ferrarese dynasty. Until then,
for all of her rank and nobility, her future hangs entirely in the balance.

  1. Fantastisk historie- och tidskänsla
    Ewa Olofsdotter Degerstedt, 27 september 2023

    Maggie o'Farrell har ett helt magiskt språk och känner in tiden och kulturen otroligt bra. Kan bara uppmana till fängslande läsning. Det oväntade slutet ger också stor dramatik.
