Renée of France is little known today, but this fascinating and often controversial woman was a correspondent of Calvin. She loved the Reformation, but in sixteenth century Italy such a position could not be lightly held. Add in a husband (the Duke of Ferrara) who served the pope and was determined to oppose Renée, plus the complexity and intrigues of Italian society of the time, and you have all the ingredients for a gripping biography.

“Simonetta Carr has succeeded in making the reader of her fine book a contemporary, yes, even a close friend of Renée of France. Based on the sources, written with great quality and a pleasure to read, is the fascinating story of this royal woman. I look forward to more of such books.”
- Prof. Dr. Herman J. Selderhuis, Professor of church history and church polity at the Theological University Apeldoorn (Netherlands); Author of several books on John Calvin
