Stone Virgin is a complex and intriguing novel. There are three stories, set in three historical Venetian periods and each one linked intimately to the Stone Virgin (the Annuciation). Were there conspiracies? Yes, clearly in the two earlier periods but what about the 20th century? There was a murder, surely. But then why does Raines seemingly ignore the implications that the woman he loves must have been involved? Or does he? This is an intricate and fascinating work.

The book is superbly creafted, the tension and atmosphere on a creep[ing curve throughout. This was a re-reading and it proved as moving the second time.

I am a fan of Barry Unsworth and have read several of his novels and I had high expectations of this one. However the book seemed incredibly slow with too many references to Italian works of art and artists. Finally the story got started became interesting and then just died. Disappointing.

Nice reading, especially for someone who has been to Venice, it is nice to imagine the scenes, the views! Read fast and enjoyed it very much.
