Venice, 1945. The war may be waning, but the city known as La Serenissima is still occupied and the people of Italy fear the power of the Third Reich. One night, under a canopy of stars, a fisherman named Cenzo finds a young woman’s body floating in the lagoon and soon discovers that she is still alive and in trouble.
Born to a wealthy Jewish family, Giulia is on the run from the Wehrmacht SS. Cenzo chooses to protect Giulia – an act of kindness that leads them into the world of Partisans, Mussolini’s broken promises, and, everywhere, the enigmatic maze of the Venice Lagoon.
The Girl from Venice is a suspenseful World War II love story set against the beauty, mystery and danger of occupied Venice.
