I read Love is Not Proud in one sitting. Author Monica Spence weaves a beautiful romantic tale that is unforgettable. Not only does she bring her characters to life but recreates Renaissance Florence as a vivid backdrop to her love story.
This is a beautifully written novella of two people who defy the differences in their social status and prove that love conquers all.
