Renaissance is a word with hope infused in every letter.
 
Since she was a child, Meg has dreamed of taking a promised trip to Florence, Italy, and being able to finally step into the place captured in a picture at her grandmother’s house. But after her grandmother passes away and it falls to her less-than-reliable father to take her instead, Meg’s long-anticipated travel plans seem permanently on hold.
 
When her dad finally tells Meg to book the trip, she prays that the experience will heal the fissures left on her life by her parents’ divorce. But when Meg arrives in Florence, her father is nowhere to be found, leaving aspiring memoir-writer Sophia Borelli to introduce Meg to the rich beauty of the ancient city. Sofia claims to be one of the last surviving members of the Medici family and that a long-ago Medici princess, Nora Orsini, communicates with her from within the great masterpieces of the Italian Renaissance.
 
When Sophia, Meg, and Nora’s stories intersect, their lives will be indelibly changed as they each answer the question: What if renaissance isn’t just a word? What if that’s what happens when you dare to believe that what is isn’t what has to be?

I really enjoyed this book. I like how the two stories, the past & present, mirrored each other. The characters were very engaging and it kept me interested the whole time.

I loved this book. I was invested in the characters and felt like I was in the story as I read it. Highly recommend.

Truly terrible book. Disjointed with different stories within the one book. Note to self, never read another book by this author.

This book was enjoyable and the author made mention to God here and there, which was good. I don't know if I'd call it a Christian book. However, I do feel the book was well written and left you wondering what was going to happen between the main character and her father. I did not like the two additional stories the author tried to tell within the main story itself. They did not hold my interest much.
