In 18th century Italy, a woman does not control her own fate, and Anastasia finds herself married off to a man she does not love. Marooned in Venice with her silk weaver husband, Anastasia dares dream of a happier life. Over three hundred years later, journalist Millie, is very much a 21st century woman. When her love affair with her boss ends, she decides to travel to Italy to write a feature story. Ensconced in a beautiful villa, she falls for the owner, Lorenzo. Millie is fascinated by the portrait of a woman there and wants to uncover her story. Working with Lorenzo, they tease apart the story of centuries of silk weavers, their craft and their tempestuous lives. Rix transports her readers to Italy, both past and present in this sweeping and sumptuous tale
