It's Tuesday...Where are you?

It's Tuesday...Where are you?

Every Tuesday I'll post about where my reading is taking me. You can join the fun too. Visit An Adventure in Reading to find out more.

This week I am enjoying a view of life in the nunnery in Ferrara, Italy in 1570 where daughters were sold, often against there wills, to convents because the expenses of a wedding dowry were too high. The politics inside the confining walls are as fascinating as the characters who live within.

Sacred Hearts by Sarah Dunant

I loved this book and thought that it had a great sense of atmosphere. I hope you are enjoying it as well.
