This novel is the first of a planned historical fiction trilogy beautifully written by Dorah Blume. This novel follows a famous artist, Botticelli, it goes on about his life and his incredible paintings. The main plot-line for this installment is about Botticelli meeting a beautiful woman who became the muse for his most famous painting: La Primavera. One thing I love more than a nail biting thriller is a beautifully written historical fiction novel. Botticelli's Muse was probably one of the longest Historical fiction novels I have read to date. It shows behind the scenes of an artists life and what inspires him to paint and what makes him not want to paint. It is a novel that that stands out from the rest when you look into it deep. It not only is amazingly written you get to see incredible illustrations as you read. It is one of those things that isn't necessary but it helps give us a feel for what to expect in the upcoming chapter. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to dive into a world of life of an artist. Be warned that is one of those books that you will read and need to step away from and come back to because of how its written.
