4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By D. crawford on August 1, 2008
Format: Hardcover
saracinesca is the first book by f. marion crawford i have read. i found it in a used book shop. i cannot tell you of my surprise about how enjoyable it has been. it was published in the 1890s and yet the language is not dated at all. in fact the narrative is riveting. especially midway through the book a sword duel that is a page turner. i must be honest that the book has the quality and comic atmosphere of the 1970s movie "the three musketeers". it is not slapstick, but it definitely moves quickley, deftly , and with narrative suspense and surprise. the book chronicles the roman aristocracy during the 1860s . it tells of the wooing of a high born duchessa, a social climbing villian who is a political subversive and a fortune hunter , an italian artist turned soldier,an aristocrat in love with the duchessa, an influential catholic cardinal and these charactors tell their stories against the panopoly of 19th century rome. one note f. marion crawford was an american who lived in italy. he was the son of thomas crawford who sculpted the statue "freedom" that tops the dome of the capitol of the united states. he was also the nephew of julia ward howe who wrote "the battle hymn of the republic".
