The Birth of Venus by Sarah Dunant


I love a great historical fiction novel, and this one was perfect.  Set in 15th century Florence, it managed to capture my visions of what the burgeoning art world would have been like.  It also fictionalized the early years of a most famous sculptor and fresco artist... however, that name will be kept until you read the novel yourself!
