Review Text

When her longstanding companion and best friend dies, newly retired history teacher Julia Garnet goes against the habits of a lifetime and takes an extended trip to Venice. A Brookner-ish type of cardiganed heroine, she soon finds herself experiencing situations she could never even have dreamed of, including a romance and the theft of a valuable painting. Intercut with the story of her adventures is an imaginative reconstruction of the Apocryphal story of Tobias and the Angel, which has strange resonances for Julia Garnet. An unusual, poignant and atmospheric tale. (Kirkus UK)show more
