Book Summary

Orphaned as an infant, Filamena Ziani grows up as the protected, much younger sister of Tullia Ziani, the most famous courtesan in sixteenth-century Venice, until a mysterious stranger offers her a gift (a single ripe plum) and an invitation to walk along the lover's path that will transform her life forever.
