the wood

Im a big fan of Venice, so I appreciate Laura Morellis special knowledge of the city, the period, and the process of gondola-making. An especially compelling story.--Frances Mayes, author,?ÿUnder the Tuscan Sun?ÿLaura Morelli has done her research, or perhaps she was an Italian carpenter in another life. One can literally smell and feel the grain of finely turned wood in her hands.--Pamela Sheldon Johns, author,?ÿItalian Food ArtisansSixteenth-century Venice is the star of Morellis well-crafted historical novel about Luca Vianello, the eldest son of the citys most renowned gondola builder. ----Publishers Weekly Starred ReviewThe heir to a gondola empire rejects his birthright but comes full circle in this fascinating glimpse into late-Renaissance Venice by art-historian-turned-novelist Morelli (Made in Italy). ----Kirkus Indie Book of the MonthThe Gondola Maker is historical fiction at its best. ----Midwest Book Review
