review The Venetian Mask A Novel

free download Ó eBook or Kindle ePUB ç Rosalind Laker The Venetian Mask A Novel review Ë 3 School for girls know little of that milieu–until they come of age Elena is forced to wed the head of the Celano clan a jealous brutal man while Marietta marries Domenico Torrisi whose family vendetta with the Celanos is centuries old Tradition dictates that the friends should never speak again but their bond is too strong to break As the French Revolution unsettl. The Venetian Mask by Rosalind Laker is a dramatic and romantic novel about two orphaned girls who reside in the famous Ospedale Della Pieta The Pieta is renowned for its beautiful and innocent girls who are presented to society through their music and artistic talents Marietta and Elena as they reach adulthood each engage in personal and often devastating pursuits for love all the while maintaining that cherished and long lasting friendship that they have createdLike many other romance novels I am left feeling utterly confused by this book I both love and hate it I love the sweeping romances the implausible plot lines and the daring schemes which occur However I did not enjoy the writing nor did I find the characters particularly believable Rosalind tends to narrate the book in the viewpoint of whomever is most important to the plot However as these perspectives are not segmented into chapters there is often a uick and random switch to other characters which can not only get incredibly confusing but also annoying By knowing other characters thoughts an element of mystery is also lost as key moments are divulged to the reader without a focus on suspense The characters also could have been written with flaws Although that may sound bitter especially as all females are explained as being impossibly beautiful there is something to be said about being normal However all four of the main characters are popular for their beauty or their hair or some other characteristic which has men dying over them With the knowledge that they are beautiful it s difficult to see any real personal development occur about their bodies as everything is always connected to a lover s opinion on beauty or a tragedy of sickness As these are young girls it was strikingly odd to read about characters who felt absolutely convinced that they were beautifulI also thought that her portrayal of them was really strange Rosalind definitely tries to make them seem uite individual feminist and strong willed However a lot of what happens and the way that they interact with others around them does not seem to encourage this view point The women s dependency on male attention is incredibly evident especially as their inability to refuse attention from higher classed men often leads them into horrifying situations While I understand that they are repressed and such being women in that time period their endless pursuit for love and attention by men makes them seem almost needy and desperate The plot lines were also very familiar territory and I did not really feel that the authoress took a chance with her story It was very much the unhappy wife the barren woman the disappointed lover or the pinning young gentlemen While she pulled these stories off uite well it would have been interesting to have included the rawer side of Venice as in the prostitutes smugglers and thieves By focusing so intently on the nobility it was almost a disconnect from the fact that there were other sides to the floating city While she made it very clear that the nobility were heavily flawed she did not venture past that class and into the poorer regions which would have been really interesting However as a lover of Venice who had just returned from the city I was really drawn into the book by the authoress s ability to create atmosphere or really enrich the scene with her explanations of scenery She uite romantically builds a scene of the city Although I really enjoyed her explanations of the city and the plot lines that although predictable were entertaining I don t think I can give this book any higher then a two star rating As the rating states it was okay but I can definitely see the flaws in it The Fatima Century romantic novel about two orphaned girls who Leah Starrs Revenge
