9780007321865: Juliet

A beautifully crafted novel, following a young woman who discovers that her family’s origins reach all the way back to literature’s greatest star-crossed lovers – Romeo and Juliet.

'Of all the great love stories ever told, hers is perhaps the most famous.
To me, she is the key to my family's fate. To you, she is Juliet.'

When Julie Jacobs inherits a key to a safety deposit box in Siena, she is told it will lead her to an old family treasure. Soon she is launched on a precarious journey into the true history of her ancestor Giulietta, whose legendary love for a young man named Romeo inspired Shakespeare's unforgettable story.

As Julie crosses paths with the descendants of the families who turned medieval Siena upside down, she begins to realize that the notorious curse, 'a plague on both your houses!' is still at work. It seems that the only one who can save her from her fate is Romeo – but where is he?

Spanning centuries, Juliet is an unforgettable adventure that hopes to rewrite the fate of the star-crossed lovers, and reunite them at last.

Recensione:

Praise for Juliet:

‘A delicious retelling of Romeo and Juliet with a contemporary setting, a mysterious safety deposit box in Siena, an ancient curse and star-crossed lovers who are determined to triumph over fate.’ Marie Claire

‘Fortier clearly knows Shakespeare back to front and makes this a faboulous read’ Woman and Home

‘A truly fabulous book. We will never see Romeo and Juliet in quite the same way again.’ Alison Weir

‘Ingenious, intriguing, a thrilling story that keeps you turning the pages. This is a wonderfully textured novel of history and imagination that brings Italy, past and present, beautifully to life.’ Kate Mosse, author of Labyrinth and Sepulchre

‘Juliet is a thrilling debut novel, completely saturated in fascinating history.’ Katherine Neville, author of The Fire

‘Juliet has it all-history, mystery, and romance. Ms. Fortier handles the dual plot lines with mastery, beautifully rendering Siena of the past and present.’Karen Essex, author of Leonardo's Swans and Stealing Athena

‘Boldly imagined, brilliantly plotted, beautifully described, Juliet will carry you spellbound until the gripping end. An astonishing achievement.’ Susan Vreeland, author of Girl in Hyacinth Blue and Luncheon of the Boating Party
