Italy, 1570. The convent of Santa Caterina is filled with noble women who are married to Christ because many cannot find husbands outside. Enter sixteen-year-old Serafina, removed by her family from an illicit love affair. While on one side of the walls, forces in the Church are pushing for change, inside, Serafina's spirit and defiance ignite a fire that threatens to engulf the whole convent.

Good story, interesting world
yes, interesting world, and fascinating historical facts that intrigued Sarah Dunant to write novel. Really like Shakespearean themed novels.

no. Happy to in the future though.
Suora Zuana, imagine the remedies she might share with me
