The Eye of the World (The Wheel of Time, #1)
Robert Jordan
The Birth of Venus - Sarah Dunant, Kathe Mazur It wasn't a work of great literature, but it gave me a window into a small part of the history of Florence - the time of the Bonfire of the Vanities. A young woman of a wealthy family must be married off even though she'd really rather run off and be a painter. She does the best she can within the confines of her life to notice what's going on around her and to have an opinion on it. Though the story is sad and melodramatic, it was a good listen.
