A Golden Web By Barbara Quick
Author: Barbara Quick
Release Date: April 6th, 2010
Bio: Alessandra is desperate to escape—from her stepmother, who’s locked her away for a year; from the cloister that awaits her if she refuses the marriage plans that have been made for her; from the expectations that limit her and every other girl in fourteenth-century Italy. There’s no tolerance in her village for her keen intelligence and her unconventional ideas.
In defiant pursuit of her dreams, Alessandra undertakes an audacious quest, her bravery equaled only by the dangers she faces. Disguised and alone in a city of spies and scholars, Alessandra will find a love she could not foresee—and an enduring fame.
In this exquisite imagining of the centuries-old story of Alessandra Giliani, the world’s first female anatomist, distinguished novelist Barbara Quick gives readers the drama, romance, and rich historical detail for which she is known as she shines a light on an unforgotten—and unforgettable—heroine.
I came across this on Harper Collins Canada site (it's sometimes easier looking on publisher websites then goodreads for upcoming 2010 books) !!! So anyways I was looking and came across this one. I've never heard of the author before, but the bio and the book trailer of a previous book she did is fabulous. As soon as I finish my current reads, I'll probably start one of her previous works because it sounds interesting. I can't wait for this one to hit the shelves!!!
