Venice 1704: Anastasia is desperate to escape her controlling father and plans to marry her childhood sweetheart. But instead of the life she has always dreamed of, she finds herself trapped in Venice, the unwilling wife of a silk weaver. 

Anastasia seeks comfort in painting and draws strength from her talents. Despite her circumstances, two women reach out to her and give Anastasia a reason to hope. And together they make a momentous decision which will change all of their lives.... 

London 2017: Millie wants more from her relationship and more from her life. So when her boss Max abruptly ends their affair, she takes the opportunity to write a feature in Italy.

And Millie finds herself compelled to discover the identity of a mysterious woman in a portrait....

Good story , but how historically accurate?

Good story, but a little too black and white (e.g., husband not just controlling but actually locks her in a room). Some parts of the story seemed too modern for the 1700s, but maybe I am wrong. Narrator's Italian accents were annoyingly bad. Overall I enjoyed it and cared about the characters, but it was not as great as the secret letter.

Wanted to like it

I like the idea of the story but it fell short for me. it could have been the narration. It was awkward. I finished the book hoping it would get better but it really didn't.
