A captivating historical romance, LADY of VENICE will transport you to Italy past and present. An incredible love story from international bestselling author SC Daiko, writing as Siobhan Daiko.
In 1504, Cecilia, a lady of Venice, joins the court of Queen Caterina Cornaro—where she catches the eye of a powerful stranger who will stop at nothing to make her his.
Summer 1989, and Fern, on vacation in Italy to deal with a personal trauma, finds herself pulled back to the sixteenth century and drawn inescapably into Cecilia’s life.
Intrigue and romance flourish at the Queen’s court as Cecilia embarks on a passionate but ill-fated affair with a penniless painter.
Luca, a twentieth century Italian architect, notices a resemblance between Fern and the girl in a painting by the artist, Giorgione. He helps Fern cope with her visions while falling increasingly under her spell.
Echoes of the past begin to manifest themselves in the present through a series of startling coincidences, until past and present collide—throwing both Fern and Cecilia into deathly danger.
Can Fern stay safe and come to terms with her own past?
