Description

The Time Returns book.

The Time Returns book. Details (if other): Cancel. Thanks for telling us about the problem. by. Alexandra Ripley.

She is writing for the pleasure of the typical reader that enjoys fiction sprinkled with history. Of course there are going to be errors along side the facts, but this is FICTION.

I am a nut about Southern history and Alexandra Ripley is one of the best fiction writers EVER regarding Southern history- her accurate depictions of geography, history, culture, architecture, customs is fantastic. Great read, characters fully developed and flows well. For those of you that have never visited Charleston, this will make you want to book your tickets!

This is one of my favorite books of all time. The story is a unique love story that takes place during the Italian Renaissance in Florence. The main characters, Lorenzo de Medici and his friend/lover/confidant Ginevra are highly complex and well developed characters.
What really makes the book for me though is all of the sub-plots that take place over the period of Lorenzo's rise to power, rule and eventual decline. Most of the characters and event in the story are based on real people and events and it is fun to see how they are woven together into a great story.
Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Botticelli, and many more artistic geniuses of the er all make an appearance, but the book is anything but a boring history.It is also far from a typical romance novel, although there is love, sex and romance. There is also murder, politics, intrigue and suspense.

This is probably my least favorite book by Alexandra Ripley. I love anything by Ripley. This story was really hard to get into. If you are a fan of the author you will like. But, this is not as rich in history as some of her other books.

Hard to put down. Alexandra Ripley does a great job in describing the time depicted. She is a great historical novelist.

After reading the reviews this book got, I almost didn't read it. Luckily, though, I know Alexandra Ripley's books and I am aware that she is not writing for art or 15th century Italy historians. She is writing for the pleasure of the typical reader that enjoys fiction sprinkled with history. Of course there are going to be errors along side the facts, but this is FICTION. If everything were kept exactly true, the story would neither flow well or catch much interest. If you want to read history then check out the reference section of your local library, but if you want to read a good love story that takes you on exciting adventures and mixes it with historical figures and places then read The Time Returns. You will absolutely fall in love with Lorenzo de'Medici and his leading lady Ginevra de'Pazzi

Picked this up from the library. If you like other books by this author, you will like this. New Orleans Legacy and Scarlett are also good reads.

I read this book at the age of 14. I knew nothing of Renaissance Italy or it's cast of characters. This book ignited my interest and desire to learn more. I paid attention in history class because these characters were personal to me. Although it is historically inaccurate in many regards, I think it's a passionate and colorful tale. It seems as though Ripley should rewrite it to be more true to historical details/events--it's a shame to let the spirit captured in this book die because of its messiness with historical fact.

This book may read like a soap opera, but it's amust for anyone who is going to Florence,Italy. In the book you read about the people of the Renaissance who were responsible for the wonderful buildings and art of the city, and about a history of the times, although there is probably a lot of fiction thrown in. This book prepared me to see and enjoy florence.
I loved this book! Alexandra Ripley is one of my favorite authors, and she didn't disappoint with The Time Returns. Her history is impeccable, and her characters make you feel as if you were in Florence during the Renaissance.
