I know you're not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but isn't this one beautiful? That's not why I read it, I just had to say that I think it's really cool.
I actually received this as an advanced reader's copy long ago, and am just now getting around to reviewing it.
I thought that "Sacred Hearts" by: Sarah Dunant was actually decent. Nothing spectacular, but it was decent. The biggest trouble I had with it was that it felt like the pinnacle point of the book occurred less than half way through it.
"Sacred hearts" is the story of a woman who is forced to become a nun against her will. She does everything in her power to get out of it, but things don't quite turn out the way she dreams. Nevertheless, there is always someone fighting for her, and against her too.
I would have liked the ending of the book to be as exciting as the middle. Other than that, it's a good read. And, it really offered me a bit of insight into 16th century convent life.
