Twenty-five-year-old Julie Jacobs travels to Siena, Italy--home of her 14th-century ancestor, Giulietta--with a mysterious key she inherited from her mother. Julie soon discovers that her own fate is irrevocably tied--for better or worse--to literature''s greatest star-crossed lovers.
Annotation:
Romeo and Juliet lived literature's cardinal story of tragic love and family rivalry, but what would you do if you found out your own family was beset by Mercutio's dying curse, "A plague on both your houses? So discovers Julie Jacobs, the heroine of Anne Fortier's JULIET, a modern mystery story with its origins in Shakespeare's classic play. Julie travels to Italy to track her ancestors, and encounters an entire community still embroiled in that centuries-old feud. Does Julie have what it takes to break the spell and escape the fate that doomed her famous namesake?
