The Medici Boy
The Medici Boy. The narrator is Luca Mattei, an assistant to Donatello. L’Heureux creates all the elements of fine opera in his novel: a story of love with consequences; betrayal; and occasional comic relief. Florence comes alive in what readers expect of historical fiction: known figures mixed with fictional characters in a speculative narrative. I entered the story quickly as my interest was engaged in the first dozen pages, and I read the novel in a few entertaining sittings. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Medici Boy from amazon.com.
