Staff Recommendation: Sacred Hearts

While this novel set in Renaissance Italy has echoes of Romeo and Juliet, it is more than a classic tale of forbidden love. What begins as the tragic fate of a young noblewoman sold into a convent and separated from her love becomes a story of complex friendship, rebellion, creativity, and redemption against the repressive political, religious and social forces.
