A beautiful story, half based on historical fact and embellished by the author's imagination.

The words `Forbidden Love¿ in the title attracted me to this book. And it sounded so great in the description. It was mostly set in Venice, so that was nice, but otherwise I shouldn¿t have wasted my time finishing it. Yawn.

I too, liked the book, I listened to the audiobook twice and I'm reading the text now, but I still think that Andrea was a weasel and Justiniana was manipulative to the extreme. Having said this, I also believe that the two young lovers and their families were very much a product of their society, and so, their story must be seen and appreciated within the confines of 18th century Venetian affairs. The Casanova connection is an interesting one, Giacomo being the ultimate and consummate weasel, himself. In sum, for a bunch of old letters, this makes for a wonderful read. I highly recommend it.
