Bella Donna

A Renaissance Mystery Novel
by Barbara Cherne

In this story full of historical details about Florence in the 1490s, a wealthy Florentine family’s cook, Giuditta, sets out to exonerate her patron, the family’s much maligned daughter-in-law Bella. Bella has been accused of murdering her mother-in-law, and her innocence now depends on Giuditta’s ability to track down clues proving her innocence. Luckily, Giuditta, being a servant, can search in places that rich Florentines never could. A fun story.
