Narrator Carlotta Brentan transports the listener to the gritty streets of Renaissance Florence in this story of a resilient girl who is surviving on her own. Brentan's gentle voice captures the youth and innocence of Beatrice, who lives on her meager earnings from selling olive oil to artists while searching for her missing mother. Beatrice befriends rivals Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, who are differentiated by distinctive voices with similar tones of egotism. They come to Beatrice's aid in different ways and recognize her artistic talent. Brentan gives Italian accents to names and locations to provide a sense of place and adds personality to the dialogue of the many local characters. The listener will especially enjoy the glimpses of the two artistic greats. J.E.S. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2021]
