This enchanting story revolves around a precious Ming vase acquired in the 15th century by a shipping merchant to give as a gift to the Doge of Venice. Circumstances and some bad luck prevent the vase from leaving the family. Through the centuries the vase was handed down through the generations of the same family, bringing good fortune to its current owner. In the year 2015, the vase is owned by Miranda, a struggling single mother, who is unaware of the vase's true, precious value. She meets and succumbs to the charms of a man named Charles and readily gives her heart to him. But he is not all that he seems. I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I especially loved the 15th century setting; it was beautifully written and very emotive. I was no less impressed with the portions of the story that dealt with Miranda. In fact, it definitely tugged at several of my emotions, anger being one of them. And rightly so. When a story can draw so many emotions from a reader, you can be certain that it is an excellent tale! Intrigue, betrayal, and abiding friendship are strong themes. I look forward to reading more by this author! A lovely read. Highly recommended. Thank you to the author and publisher. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
