Y a fierce love she wed Casanova in secret But his shocking betrayal inspired her to commit an act that would mark her forever Now twenty years later on the island of Murano the woman in possession of Caterina’s most devastating secret has appeared with a reuest she cannot refuse to take in a noble born girl whose scandalous love affair resembles. I am a sucker when it comes to books taking place in Italy rich in culture and history it s my ultimate vacation destination I have been to a couple cities there but never Venice or the island of Murano As my blog subtitle states reading gives you someplace to go when you have to stay where you are which is exactly what Casanova s Secret Wife did It transported me to the eighteenth century with lush descriptive settings from gondola rides to food to the conventI am familiar with the name Casanova but know nothing about this character to really show my ignorance I wasn t even sure this was a real person or just a myth Which was one of my main reasons for wanting to read this one While I was immediately drawn into this story I did struggle with Caterina s age I realize that girls matured early back in the day but my feeling throughout this book was that she was older and wiser than 14 years though some of her actions spoke clearly of someone lacking maturity The plot was interesting and proves Casanova s reputation the author had wonderful author s notes to show her research and how true she stayed to the facts but it s fiction and she filled in the gaps uite nicely This story is told from Caterina s initial meeting and then 20 years later as she recounts what took place I loved that the author used some of Casonava s actual writings here and gave info about his lifeCasanova s Secret Wife is a story of first love loss and redemption it s one I enjoyed read and has me keeping my eye open for by this authorThanks to HFVBT for the invite to be part of this tour and a print copy in exchange for honest review
