Overview

Escape From Verona, Juliet's long-lost diary, begins where Shakespeare leaves off, explaining how she and Romeo fake their deaths and escape from the Capulet family tomb. Their escape does not bring peace to Verona. They are accused of murder and witchcraft and are hunted by powerful forces, including the Papacy and the Venetian government.
Their adventures require not only eluding capture, but they must also learn what it means to love one another without the backdrop of their family feud. What sacrifices are required for a well-bred young woman and a proud young swordsman to survive together? Is heedless passion enough to make their marriage last?
As the lovers flee across northeast Italy they encounter many other characters made famous in Shakespeare's plays, Petruchio, Shylock, Desdemona and Othello among them. Their efforts are further aided by many of the artists of the late Renaissance, including Palladio, Tintoretto, Veronese and Titian.

    What if Romeo & Juliet didn't die in the tomb?...

    Romeo & Juliet are such a legendary couple. They went great lengths in the name of their love. But what if they never died? What if they faked their deaths and planned on leaving Verona so they could be together? Ever wonder what would happen? Could they leave peacefully? Would they be able to get away? Well, Escape From Verona tells this story. With the help of a manuscript discovered centuries ago, buried within the walls of a house, David Gray takes you on an unforgettable journey.

    Ugo is the man who wants all the things nobility provides, but doesn't have the noble birth to supply it. So, when he sets out to capture Romeo & Juliet he not only sees his ticket to noble trappings, he also sees the chance to manipulate powerful people to get what he wants. Ugo will stop at nothing- including murdering many and setting the scene so it looks like Romeo is the murderer.

    A great story told in a marvolous way. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I hope you do as well.

    a pleasant surprise

    A friend recommended this book to me knowing how much I enjoy Shakespeare. Frankly, I was a bit hesitant. Who could follow Shakespeare? But what a pleasant surprise! The book grabbed me from the beginning and led me to the end with interest and delight. I'm looking forward to a sequel from Mr. Gray for another one of Shakespeare's work.
