“If I were not King of France, I would choose to be a citizen of Venice.” –Henri III 

Those are powerful words, but then Venice is a powerful draw.  I think it safe to conclude there is no other place in the world that is as steeped in history, still operating strictly on water or foot, and is a major tourist attraction, yet in danger of crumbling back into the sea.

I was so intrigued I wrote a novel set in Venice, with forays into Murano and Padua.  It’s launch is today!
