EBOOK Murder in the Garden of God

Murder in the Garden of GodHis election the mild mannered doddering old man becomes a wrathful spirit unleashing a torrent of revenge across Italy on all those involved in his nephew’s murder Rich in the descriptions of contemporary sources this riveting true story transports the readers into the beauty and brutality of a lost era and an intriguing tragedy of Shakespearean proportio I went into this expecting it to be a novel but was very disappointed when it was a bio instead This was a bit of history that I didn't know about and enjoyed learning about the Renaissance in Italy and the process and politics of the church and being elected pope I feel like there wasn't enough info available to her and so she made it longer by adding in so much information about Renaissance life that we would go chapters before returning to the main topic I will read her next one about the female pope but I wish that one had been a novel as well
