Venetian dreams and delights,
This review is from: The Undrowned Child (Paperback)
Rich in enchanting imagery and fantasy, as usual with Michelle Lovric, this is also an exciting adventure with the requisite 'goodies' and 'baddies' who battle for the survival of the way of life of Venice.
Written for an intelligent reader of any age,it presents quite a complicated plot . The protagonists' dashing around Venice would be better appreciated by those who have an acquaintance with the city, but this does not detract from enjoyment of the unfolding tale.
The author conveys the unique atmosphere of Venice and enhances it with an imaginative exploitation of some of the myths and characters which emerge from its history, animating it with a few more of her own.
