I bought 'From A Venetian Courtyard' because I love Venice but never expected the 'feel' of Venice to come over so well. I could actually picture the canals, palaces etc. It's not a tourist read at all - the stories are extraordinary, really atmospheric but with a dry wit. I kept turning the pages. My best buy for ages! M.R.London

A collection of delightful short stories, Venice is beautifully described in different lights, seasons and moods. The stories are well constructed, the plots are gripping and often contain a twist. The link between the stories is the courtyard but also the characters who leave behind traces of their previous presence or who sometime can be seen only as a face in a window to later be the character driving a story. Enough said! I strongly recommend this book, read it and let's look forward to the next one!

I loved these tales. They offer a tantalising feel for this wonderful city, wetting the appetite for a first visit or bringing back memories of the many locations and experiences from previous visits. The plots are never dull and lead the imagination in all sorts of unexpected directions. I shall return again and again to this book and look forward to the next collection from this author or even the development of some of the plots into full scale novels.

I really enjoyed this selection of short stories, variations in different keys and tempos, united by such a strong sense of place. Together with some fine descriptive writing the narratives do what all good stories should - keep you reading, to learn what happened next; and the characters, linked as they are in sometimes unexpected ways, stay in the mind long after the story is ended, as does Venice itself. A really good read. Makes you want to go there right away!

This book is beautifully written, painting very emotive pictures of Venice in every season. The stories are heartfelt and touching about real people in real situations. I would highly recommend this to anyone planning a trip to Venice or anyone wishing to bring back memories of a visit to the beautiful city. Having said that, the stories are well worth reading regardless of the Venetian connection.

Patricia Nolan's wonderful book is a treat for those who enjoy a well crafted story, carefully blended with almost tangible descriptions of Venice. This work is captivating from the first to last page, which comes all too soon on the journey through various insights into the lives of her diverse cast of characters. This really is an outstanding and swift paced up-close look at a pivotal time in each person or indeed feline's unique world. Set against the backdrop of a beautiful flat in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, the use of individual occupants is a clever devise which serves to move the narrative forward as we effortlessly and seamlessly progress from one tale to another.

I highly recommend this book and envy those reading it for the first time.

I read this book on holiday and couldn't put it down. There are some fantastic, unexpected twists and the atmosphere of Venice is almost tangible. I love some of the character formations and wished that the author had continued each story. I highly recommend From A Venetian Courtyard.
