Publisher's Summary

In the early 1900s, the playwright Galeazzo D’Ascanio lived for Celia Sands. She was his muse and the inspiration for his most stunning and original play. But the night before she was to take the stage, Celia disappeared. Now, decades later, Alessandro D’Ascanio is preparing to stage the first performance of his grandfather’s masterpiece. A promising young actress - who shares Celia Sands’ name, but not her blood - has agreed to star.
She is instantly drawn to the mysteries surrounding the play - and to her compelling, compassionate employer. And even though she knows she should let the past go, in her dreams it comes back.

Evocative Prose

A writer's writer, Susanna Kearsley is a master at immersing her readers in the details of place, whether it be the coast of Scotland or northern Italy. The descriptions here of Venice and Lake Garda are spot on, and she always finds a way to seamlessly weave in local history, giving the contemporary scenes a sense of time and continuity. Which expertly sets the stage for her well-delineated characters. I also appreciate the measured pacing, so refreshing in this age of the sound bite. She's not in a hurry to tell her story, and I, for one, am never in a hurry to have her stories end. Season of Storms will remind you (in its fine sense of foreboding) of Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca.
