Overview

This is a novel of intrigue, romance, passion, poison and betrayal set in the Italy during the late 15th or early 16th century. Protagonist Lionardo da Feltre, scholar-nobleman and Vicar of the Holy Roman Empire, takes time out from his study of Greek and Roman texts to advise armies on their battle tactics, and rescue his friends from the dangers that befall them as they pursue their emotions rather than their intellects. Springtime is an entertaining, accessible look at a society that readers will recognize as the setting of some of Shakespeare's best-known plays, both comic and tragic.
