Description
(Winner of the 2002 Grand Prix du Roman de l'Académie Française) Who is the woman who looks out at us from Andrea Mantegna's masterful painting, The Gonzaga Family? In this international bestseller Marie Ferranti delves into 15th-century Italian life, beginning with the 10-year-old Barbara von Brandenburg leaving her native Germany to marry the Prince of Mantua, Ludovico Gonzaga. Based on a series of letters between Barbara and her cousin Maria, the novel chronicles how the princess weathers her many trials, including illnesses, war, and the curse of heredity: all Gonzaga women are born hunchbacked.

"The novel is written as history, providing hints at events and motivations behind the deeds depicted…. At the end of this story, we want to know more about the family, the painting and its artist, and Mantua's culture…. Recommended."—Library Journal
