A child of the revolutionary spirit that burnt through Europe from Paris Both have very different ideas than Countess Potocki on how to lives their lives and how to survive the turmoil in the beginning of this new century Brilliantly written cleverly constructed with a strong cast of characters both real and fictional and vivid scenes Garden of Venus is an alluring sensuous and exotic saga which will delight readers of Tracy Chevalier Philippa Gregory and Isabelle Allen. Found it difficult to follow the different characters and so for me it lost the fluency of the story as much time spent putting the character in place
