The Shepherdess of Siena by Linda Lafferty
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
As someone who loved horses as a young girl, I could relate to the main character a little bit. Of course, it was okay for me to ride and not scandalous. Wonderful story paralleling the Di'Medici reign of Tuscany. The only problems I have with historical fiction is plucking the fact from the fiction. It makes the story interesting but I'd almost rather the two be separate. Aside from that, this story was vibrant with wonderful, actualized characters. I would recommend this to anyone interested in history, Italy, horses, or art. Very enjoyable read.
