The title may have you think about a love drama from William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet. Well, this version is different. It started with an American girl, Julie Jacob, who travelled to Sienna in search of her Italian heritage. She later discovered about her ancestor from 14th century, Giulietta Tomei, who was involved in love affair and family feud. Those families’ descendants were still living in Sienna and still under the curse of hatred. To investigate what happened in the past, Julie searched through relics, paintings, journals, a ring and a dagger.
It is like a modern adventure and romance story, isn’t it? It is… the story is so much fun to read and discover surprises… Recommended books for this Fall, here is one of them — “Juliet”.
