Summary
Kimm does poetic justice to the backstory hinted at by Robert Browning in his hauntingly lyrical "My Last Duchess." Building on the ratcheting tension that characterizes Browning's classic verse, she exquisitely extrapolates and embellishes the tragic story of Lucrezia de Medici, the beguiling and passionate child bride of the nefarious Alfonso d'Este, duke of Ferrara. Doomed by both her irrepressibly affectionate nature and the duke's obsessive need to produce an heir, Crezzi's unhappy fate seems sealed. Kimm neatly ties up all the loose ends while cleverly setting the stage for a spin-off. Poetry enthusiasts will be intrigued and historical fiction fans will appreciate the authentic Renaissance-era detailing
