The Rossetti Letter

Author(s): Christi Phillips


In seventeenth century Venice, Alessandra Rossetti, a courtesan, becomes entangled in a dangerous political intrigue that threatens to destroy the Venetian Republic. She alone has the power to reveal a Spanish plot. But to do so would threaten the life of the one she loves. Centuries later, postgraduate student Claire Donovan is writing her dissertation on the young courtesan. She has discovered that Alessandra wrote a secret letter to the Venetian Council exposing the Spanish conspiracy. But until now, no one knows how Alessandra learned of the plot, or what happened to her once it was revealed. Claire hopes that she will uncover the secrets of the young courtesan's life within the heart of Venice's ancient libraries and prove Alessandra deserves her place in history. But upon arrival in Venice, Claire learns that Cambridge professor Andrew Kent is to present a paper on The Spanish Conspiracy, asserting that Alessandra was a co-conspirator of the Spanish. If he can prove his theory, all of Claire's work - and her academic career - will be ruined. She knows she must discover the facts of Alessandra's role in order to save her own future.
