Woven into the story of this historical conflict are the tragic destinies of two heroines: Euthanasia, Countess of Valperga, and Beatrice. Described by the author's father, William Godwin, as 'the jewel of the book', Beatrice is a heretic with whom Castruccio falls in love, while Euthanasia finds herself increasingly torn between loyalty to her Guelph roots and her passion for Castruccio."--Jacket
