Acclaimed author Andrea di Robilant sweeps listeners back to 18th-century Venice for a spellbinding tale of forbidden love. Originally serialized in The New Yorker, this dazzling story is based on actual family letters.
The letters describe a searing and illicit affair between the author's ancestor, a great Venetian statesman, and a beautiful half-English girl. The couple pursued their passion with reckless abandon, offending nearly everyone, and even getting some help along the way from the infamous Casanova. In gambling dens, glitzy ballrooms, decadent salons, and private rooms, the lovers thrived on their secret trysts.

"True love but impossible"
My favorite love story. Performance is exceptional. Highly recommend to all. It's relatable even though it's set in the 1750's!!!
