Sarah Dunant has delivered again in her third book set in Renaissance Italy. Although The Birth of Venus is still my favorite, this story really worked and I enjoyed it quite a lot. I could identify with both Zuana and Isabetta (known through most of the book as Serafina). Zuana is the older of the two. She's the convent's apothecary. Basically, she is the in-house doctor for all the nuns. Zuana does what I would probably have tried to do if put in her situation:
