Book Club Read for March
Of all the great Love stories ever told,
hers is perhaps the most famous.
To me, she is the key to my family's fate.
To you, she is Juliet.
When a young woman inherits the key to a safety deposit box in Siena,
she is told it will lead to an old family treasure.
This mysterious legacy leads her on a dangerous journey into the past -
and to the true story of her ancestor, Giulietta, whose love for a
young man named Romeo turned medieval Siena upside down.
In Siena, the past and the present collide as she crosses paths
with the descendants of the families involved in the blood feud that inspired
Shakespeare's famous tragedy. It soon becomes clear that the
notorious curse "A plague on both your houses" is still at work -
and she is the next target. Only someone like Romeo,
it seems, could save her from a dreaded fate, but his story
ended long ago. Or did it?
