Capturing the delicate beauty of Venice, the novel is a dark love poem to the city whose sinuous canals it traces. Suspenseful and evocative, this multi-layered work is an intimate portrayal of a woman’s perilous voyage of self-discovery. The reader is plunged into Venice’s tangled web of alleys and canals, but soon realizes that the connections do not stop at the shores of the Adriatic. The fates of creatures far away, the tales of people without a voice, reverberate through the pages.
