This is a historical romance and if you are a fan of this genre of novels I would recommend this book to you I am not a fan and for that reason I did not finish the book It starts out with Catherine Medici as a 8 year old in Florence and I managed to read through the trials and tribulations of her childhood I am not sure how accurate the story is and through to the start of her marriage Not having finished the book I cannot say at what point in Catherines life it endsI read this book hoping that it would be a regular historical fiction novel that would tell me about the Medici family It did not fulfill my hopes
