Marina Fiorato - Daughter of Sienna

With a string of hits behind her (The Glassblower of Murano, The Madonna of the Almonds and The Botticelli Secret) Marina Fiorato surely has a top seller again with her fourth novel, Daughter of Sienna. 

From the sumptuous cover and the note, 'For her nineteenth birthday, she was given a necklace and a husband', to the hint, on the back jacket, of intrigue to come, her new tale of " ...treachery, courage and the power of love" looks the part.

I was astonished to read that the author, far from living in medieval Italy herself, was born in Manchester and raised in the Yorkshire Dales!
