Summary
Eighteenth-century Venice saw the marriage of two powerful and prominent citizens: Lucia, the daughter of a Venetian statesman, and Alvise Mocenigo, son of a powerful Venetian family. As years passed, however, turmoil descended on this family as infidelity, difficulties with conception, and Napoleon's war took their toll. Told here, through Lucia's letters to her sister and other primary sources, is an amazing firsthand account of Lucia's harrowing and provocative life
