ABOUT THE BOOK
Discovered floating in a basket along the canals of Venice, Sebastien Trovato wrestles with questions of his origins. Decades later, on an assignment to translate a rare book, Daniel Goodman finds himself embroiled in a web of secrets carefully kept within the ancient city and in the mystery of the man whose story the book does not finish: Sebastien.
This is the first of this author I am reading.
I like the slow pace of the book and it took a while for me to get into the rhythm of story. The author’s writing style is unique.
An inspiring story with amazing characters and a settting that makes one want to teleport there.
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley and this is my honest opinion
