Read in March, 2010

Great, now I'm going to be talking in flowery Rennaisance prose for the rest of the day....

This is the story of a Jewish woman in Italy in the early 1500s. From the cruelty of the early Jewish ghettos to the brutal sack of Rome, this book gave me the most personal, immediate sense of medieval life I've ever read.
