Publisher's Summary

Anastasia (Stacia) Uqualla has been dead for 11 years, residing as a spirit in the Italian Church of Ognissanti, when she suddenly awakens in the body of the renowned Renaissance beauty, Simonetta Vespucci. She reunites with Mariano, the father of Botticelli, whose ghostly presence has kept her company in the afterlife.

Her journey through the Renaissance will also find her rubbing elbows with the young Leonardo da Vinci, Lorenzo de' Medici, and many other Renaissance painters, including the awkwardly dashing Botticelli himself.

With the body and raging hormones of a teenage girl, Stacia experiences all the passions in life a second time around.

    Story
    "I felt like was there!"

    I felt that I was there in Renaissance Florence! While I love reading stories, for this I listened to the audio book and experienced a whole different world of feelings and closeness with the characters. The way that Ms. Emery melded her previous character's personae with Simonetta was so intimate and funny at times. I imagined what it would like to meet Sondra and Leonardo; what would I ask them, what would I tell them of their future s if I was given the opportunity? The story was original and intriguing. I could barely make myself take breaks from listening for fear of missing something or having to return to present reality without knowing what happened. I highly recommend this book to anyone and especially if you love Florence or the great artists.
