Not yet rated | write a review
A beautifully written, lushly romantic historical novel based on the poem "My Last Duchess" by Robert Browning. The chilling story of Lucrezia de Medici, duchess to Alfonso d''Este, His Last Duchess paints a portrait of a lonely young girl and her marriage to an inscrutable duke. Lucrezia longs for love, Alfonso desperately needs an heir, and in a true story of lust and dark decadence, the dramatic fireworks the marriage kindles threaten to destroy the duke''s entire inheritance, and Lucrezia''s future. His Last Duchess gorgeously brings to life the passions and people of sixteenth-century Tuscany and Ferrara. "A passionate love story that gets under your skin." -- Kate Furnivall, author of The Jewel of St. Petersburg and The Russian Concubine
