From the Publisher
That's my last duchess painted on the wall...
Seduced by the hot sun and blinding passions of Renaissance Italy,
sixteen-year-old Lucrezia de' Medici sees a gilded life stretching
ahead. Her wealthy new husband handpicked her to be his bride, and
his great castle in Ferrara will be her playground. But Alfonso
d'Este, Duke of Ferrara quickly proves to be just as dangerous and
mysterious as he is dark and handsome, and the stone walls of the
castle seem to trap Lucrezia like a prison.
Only the duke's lover Francesca seems able to tame his increasing
fury, as his desperate need to produce an heir drives him deep into
precarious obsession. With her head full of heartbroken dreams,
Lucrezia flees from him down a dangerous path that may cost her
Step into the elegant world of the Robert Browning poem "My Last
Duchess," as imagined by Gabrielle Kimm, where she brings to life
the passions and people of sixteenth-century Tuscany and Ferrara.
It is a chilling story of forbidden love and dark decadence that
will haunt you.
