December Pick: Juliet by Anne Fortier
For our upcoming book club party on December 11 we chose Juliet by Anne Fortier. Join our literary journey to Siena, Italy, the setting of the first version of Romeo and Juliet and where orphaned twin Julie Jacobs, aka Guilietta Tolomei, travels to discover the truth about her Italian ancestry.
“With exquisite detail and flawless pacing, Juliet is a multi-layered tapestry of Julie’s present and Giulietta’s 14th-century past, where families, generations apart, are still at each other’s throats. Betwixt tragedy and epic romance, Juliet will stir your heart and quicken your pulse. After all, if Julie is Giulietta, then where art thou, Romeo?” – Jamie Ford, author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet
“From Anne Fortier comes a sweeping, beautifully written novel of intrigue and identity, of love and legacy, as a young woman discovers that her own fate is irrevocably tied—for better or worse—to literature’s greatest star-crossed lovers.” – Good Reads
