Product description

Review

“Lois Leveen has crafted a startlingly original take on an iconic love story, and with grace and insight presents Shakespeare’s Verona and its characters in a wonderfully new and surprising light. Angelica’s unabashed sensual nature is balanced by her understanding of the complexities of the human predicament, and in the end, her resilience inspires us all to be more tolerant of our own wounded hearts.” 
—Linda Holeman, author of The Devil on Her Tongue and The Lost Souls of Angelkov
 
“If Romeo and Juliet is the story of two star-crossed lovers, then Juliet’s Nurse is the equally compelling love affair between the infant Juliet Cappelletti and her milk mother and nurse, Angelica. Leveen’s novel is clever, fast-paced, well-researched and beautifully written. Convincing historical details are sprinkled throughout with a light hand, provoking in the reader the sense of: Oh, of course, yes . . . this is how it must have been in the 14th century. Exactly like this. I loved it.”
—Roberta Rich, author of The Harem Midwife and The Midwife of Venice
 
“Wise, thoughtful and utterly irresistible, Juliet’s Nurse opens the back door to Shakespeare’s masterpiece, telling a powerful story not just of youth seduced by love and destruction, but also of maturity left to pick up what is left and carry on.”
—Eva Stachniak, author of The Winter Palace and Empress of the Night, the novels of Catherine the Great
