So thrilled and honored to be included in ABA's Winter 2015-2016 Top Ten Indie Next Great Reads List! DA VINCI'S TIGER IS # 7!
7. Da Vinci’s Tiger, by Laura Malone Elliott
(Katherine Tegen Books, 9780060744243, $17.99)
“Ginevra de’ Benci: This mysterious figure is the subject of one of Leonardo da Vinci’s earliest, groundbreaking masterpieces. In Da Vinci’s Tiger, Elliott imagines Ginevra’s story, based on known fragments from history and the only surviving scrap of her poetry: ‘I ask your forgiveness and I am a mountain tiger.’ Ginevra’s story is captivating, empowering, and beautifully told, as she navigates Florence during the Renaissance, a time when women were to be seen and not heard.” —Hana Boxberger, Village Books, Bellingham, WA
