About this title

Synopsis:

It is the fourteenth century and Florence is a bustling city, generating considerable wealth from its thriving woollen cloth industry and famed banking houses. Curious, capable and determined, Cammilla's life takes an unexpected turn when she is forced to leave her farming family and move to nearby Florence. She learns to read and write, and develops a head for business, putting her at odds with Florentine customs and traditions. From child, to bride, and then mother, her strength of character is constantly tested as she faces challenging and emotional situations, as well as searching to unravel the mysteries of her family secrets. Cammilla's story takes place against a background of real life events including the devastating effects of the Black Plague, the tumultuous wool workers' rebellion, the construction of the grand duomo - Santa Maria del Fiore, and the growth and development of the city's woollen cloth industry. This is historical fiction at its best, taking the reader on a journey that comes to life through a cast of characters representing family and working life of the period, providing an opportunity for the reader to feel and see what Florence was really like on the cusp of the Renaissance.
