Shylock's Daughter: A Novel of Love in Venice

Coperta unu
W. W. Norton & Company, 2003 - 225 pagini
When the beautiful Jessica Pruitt arrives in Venice to star in a film based on The Merchant of Venice, she is preoccupied: she has recently lost custody of her daughter, and as an older actress she is increasingly aware of the difficulty of landing leading roles. One day, as she wanders through an old Jewish ghetto, Jessica is magically transported to sixteenth-century Venice where she finds herself the heroine of "Will" Shakespeare's play. Immediately attracted to the younger playwright, Jessica enters into an intensely passionate love affair that defies time and place. Reading group guide included.

Writing and characters were supurb! Definitely more on the romance side than the historical fiction side, and some heavy sprinkling of deus ex machina, and the plot described on the back only emerges in the second half of the book, but, if romance is your thing, definitely worth a read.

Venice. Enraptured. Almost catatonic. Can we ever recapture that part of ourselves which seems to be missing? Citește recenzia completă
