    Read ✓ Muse AUTHOR Mary Novik 104 Muse AUTHOR Mary NovI really enjoyed Muse I was with Solange from the opening pages and enjoyed all her ups and downs immensely finding her adventures both exciting from a modern readers point of view and realistic for the time and setting which is fourteenth century Avignon France The characters and their relationships are very believable especially the fatal attraction between Solange and Petrarch who writes the most incredible poetry to another woman the famous Laura because of her help Novik hit the right note for me not too modern and not too historical believable yet aut
