Brucker, author of Renaissance Florence, turns what might have been a dusty piece of scholar's trivia into a top-notch courtroom drama, complete with contradictory testimony and recanting witnesses. Character defamations fly, lawyers delay, suspense over the verdict mounts. But it's a fascinating one, which gives that clichÉ phrase ""a class-conscious society"" a refreshingly human dimension.

This compelling account of a wronged woman in Renaissance Florence, first published in 1986, is a fascinating view of Florentine society and its attitudes on love, marriage, class, and gender. Lusanna was a beautiful woman from a middle-class background who, in 1455, brought suit against Giovanni, her aristocratic lover, when she learned he had contracted to marry a woman of his own class. Blending scholarship with insightful narrative, the book portrays an extraordinary woman who challenged the unwritten codes and barriers of the social hierarchy and dared to seek a measure of personal independence in a male-dominated world.

I had to buy this book for my women's studies class and I must say I usually dread reading the books that I don't personally choose, but this one was actually a pretty great read. I am interested in women's history and European History, at that. This book was a short read, it only took me a couple hours to get through it. I would recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in social and gender roles during the Renaissance era, it is a great example of how a marriage is viewed between government and the church as well as how a man and a woman are looked upon during this time.

This book is about a marriage court case during the Renaissance - It provides insight on women and different social class hiearchies. It reminds me of a soap opera with he said she said arguments.

This book is very interesting. It definitely was not what I expected it to be but I found the story to be so entrancing that I couldn't put the book down until I was completely done reading it!

I got this book for school. Good quality and everything but the book was boring. Don't read in your free time
