Book Review - COLOR SONG by Victoria Strauss
PASSION BLUE was all about the convents and how some women found a degree of independence there in the middle ages. COLOR SONG introduces the courtesan, the only other class of women who were able to assert themselves in business and politics. Don't worry, this book is clean YA, but what a choice, right? Be property as a daughter than wife, or choose saint or sinner.
Again, as with PASSION BLUE, fantastic attention to historical detail, wonderful characterization, plotting, pacing, etc. A must read for anyone interested in art history or wanting to read YA historical fiction that isn't all about a boy.
