Another amazing book by Andrea di Robilant which tells the marvelous...and true...story of of his great-great-great-great-grandmother Lucia Mocenigo through her letters. Reads like a novel! Beautifully read by Stephen Hoye.

A unique Italian perspective of the napoleonic age
Having read A Venetian Affair which was about the unrequited love affair of Lucia's father, I was excited to read about Lucia's life. I particularly liked that it gave a insight into italian history during a time that is not ancient rome or the renaissance. It was also amazing that Lucia had close friendships with some very well known historical figures in France and Austria. Her influence on her son's development and close relationship with her sister were also very well drawn.
