With their stomachs churning on the jewels they have swallowed, the courtesan Fiammetta and her companion dwarf Bucino escape the sack of Rome.

It's 1527.  They head for the shimmering, decadent city of Venice.

Sarah Dunant's epic novel of sixteenth-century Renaissance Italy is a story about the sins of pleasure and the pleasures of sin, an intoxicating mix of fact and fiction, and a dazzling portait of one of the worlds greatest cities at its most potent moment in history.

A breathtaking historical novel about love, beauty, the politics of sex and the power of loyalty by the author of Sacred Hearts.
