When Cardinal Rodrigo Borgia buys his way into the papacy, he is defined not just by his wealth, charisma and power, but by his blood: a Spanish Pope in a city run by Italians. If he is to succeed, he must use his Machiavellian son and innocent daughter. Stripping away the myths around the Borgias, Blood & Beauty breathes life into the astonishing family of Alexander VI and celebrates the raw power of history itself: compelling, complex, and relentless.

May was looking to leave her life in the back streets of Bolton behind and start afresh in the United States. Leah Fleming's powerful novel brings the disaster vividly to life. It describes how human stories of lost babies, abusive husbands and friendships forged in the traumatic circumstances. The Captain's Daughter is a sweeping read full of incident and human emotion that marks the centenary of the ship's sinking.
