We can't change the past, but the past can change us . . .
Asolo, Veneto, northern Italy, 1504, Cecilia joins the court of Queen Caterina Cornaro and sparks the interest of two men, a wealthy aristocrat and a penniless artist, setting in train a tale of passion and intrigue which throws her into mortal peril.
Five hundred years later, Fern visits her aunt in Asolo to find solace from a recent trauma. There, her dreadful dreams of fiery death transform into reality as she slips back in time and sees the world increasingly through Cecilia’s eyes.
Soon echoes of the past start to manifest themselves in the present. Can Fern keep out of danger and come to terms with her own past?
What reviewers have said:
A very easy, light holiday read.
The romance is warm and erotic without being exaggerated and the relationships real.
This book is a unique blend - romance, history, time-slip story, mystery…it worked really well and all ingredients were combined flawlessly.
The author's descriptive powers are quite excellent - together with Fern/Cecilia, we move in a world that we can see, feel and touch.
The book is consistently compelling and the two story lines are beautifully interwoven.
I loved this story, I fell in love with Italy, with the characters, past and present....I would wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone!
Fantastic love story really made you feel like you were there and witnessing it.
