I recall that I liked this very much when I read it about forty years ago -- if I remember rightly, it concerns an Italian nobleman whose long and faithful love is finally rewarded. When I first read it, I was struck by the fact that the hero was a Roman nobleman loyal to the papal state and opposed to its incorpration into unified Italy -- everything I had read up to that point was very sympahetic to the unification, so having a hero oppose it (and a villain who opportunistically supported it) surprised me. On balance, i still think unification was probably a good thing,but reading this did make me more aware of its imperfections. This is the first of a series of at least three volumes tracing this family. ( )
