Note: 
Set in Venice in 1592 and informed by a feminist sensibility, this is an engrossing and historically accurate novel about a girl from a noble family who wants to be a scholar. Her love for a young Jewish man is an important but not central part of the plot. A vivid picture of Venetian society is drawn and Donata is based on Elena Piscopia, a Venetian woman who earned a doctoral degree from the University of Padua in 1678.
