The Lady and the Unicorn, by Tracy Chevalier
I enjoyed the story and learning about the historical background of the time and the art and craft of tapestry making. Now, the museum in Paris where they are displayed is on my list of places to see! I'm glad to know there are replicas in New Orleans; I might get to see them sooner!
I did not care for the explicit "love scenes" between Nicolas and his women. In my opinion, they could have been alluded to in a more general way. That's what I like about the classics I've read; writers were more discreet in past centuries.
This book has had several readers; you can read other reviews here
