Set during the Inuisition Catherine ueen of Montalcino rescues Isabella from a brutal rape While convalescing the women fall in love creating a spiritual struggle fo. This is not a light read especially there are uite some truth to the period of inuisition Be prepared to shed a few tears reading this bookThe story started with Catherine the ueen of Montalcino rescuing a tortured and very wounded Isabella during her journey back to her castle Given the ordeal Isabella went through the her difficulty in establishing trust with people Catherine became her sole care taker She gradually came to enjoy Isabella's intellectual conversations and company but struggles with her feeling towards Isabella The first portion of the book was focused on Catherine and Isabella's relationship how the companionship gradually sets into deep love with such connection and tenderness; and the latter portion has focus on how Catherine through compassion and bravery stood up for her people to fight against cruelty and injustice of inuisition Can't say I'm a big fan of the ending but I would say it is appropriate given the circumstances I just wish the characters have to suffer less I'm sure the events will have very profound effects on Sofi as well and her future path as ueenI'm not a religious person but I do believe God's love is universal and non discriminatory It is sometimes human who chooses to interpret God's words in a one dimensional way Do read the prologue and epilogue of this book it is interesting how the author describes the story came musing in her headHighly recommending this book and I know I'll be re reading it soon
