…Fiammetta, a courtesan, and her business partner, a dwarf named Bucino, work to overcome losing everything in the 1527 fall of Rome to rebuild a profitable, socially acceptable business. Their return to her hometown is strained by damage to her beauty and lack of financial means. She reconnects with an acquaintance who seems to possess healing powers; the friendship leads them down an unexpected path.

I am enjoying it primarily because of the glimpse it gives into that part of history. The story is interesting. I’d recommend it to anyone who enjoys historical fiction.
