To celebrate the release of her brilliant new historical novel David, the author Mary Hoffman will be doing a blog tour from July 4th- August 4th, which will stop here on the 15th July. I've finished reading David and it really does bring the man behind Michaelangelo's work of art to life in a wonderful Italian setting filled with political intrigue, danger and romance. I'd recommend you check out the tour and reviews that will be coming soon! I know I'm excited about having more of an insight into David through the tour posts =)

Publisher description for David:
Michelangelo's statue of David is renowned all over the world. Thousands flock to Florence to admire the artistry behind this Renaissance masterpiece, and to admire the beauty of the human form captured in the marble. But the identity of the model for this statue that has been so revered for over five hundred years has been lost ...In this epic story Mary Hoffman uses her persuasive narrative skills to imagine the story of Gabriele, an eighteen-year-old who, by becoming Michelangelo's model, finds himself drawn into a world of spies, politicking, sabotage and murder. Set against the backdrop of Florence, this is a rich, colourful and thrilling tale.
