Abstract:

Fifteenth-century Rome: The Borgia family is on the rise. Lucrezia's father, Pope Alexander VI, places his illegitimate daughter and her only brothers, Cesare, Giovanni, and Goffredo, in the jeweled splendor--and scandal--of his court. From the Pope's affairs with adolescent girls to Cesare's dangerous jealousy of anyone who inspires Lucrezia's affections to the ominous birth of a child conceived in secret, no Borgia can elude infamy. Young Lucrezia gradually accepts her fate as she comes to terms with the delicate nature of her relationships with her father and brothers. The unbreakable bond she shares with them both exhilarates and terrifies her as her innocence begins to fade. Soon she will understand that her family's love pales next to their quest for power and that she herself is the greatest tool in their political arsenal.
