Publisher's Summary

A World War II love story set against the romance and danger of occupied Venice.

Cenzo is a world-weary fisherman determined to sit out the rest of the war. He's happy to stay out of the way of the SS, quietly going about his business of fishing in the lagoons of Northern Italy. Then one night, instead of pulling in his usual haul, Cenzo fishes a young woman out of the canal. Guilia is an Italian Jew who has managed to escape capture and is determined to find her family. This meeting results in them both taking an entirely unexpected journey, and Cenzo suddenly finds himself thrown headlong into the world of international wartime politics, where everyone has their own agenda and nowhere is safe.

Predictable and unconvincing as a story and a performance.

The plotting and characterisation are dull and unconvincing. It serves the subject matter ill. The harsh American performance makes no sense for a story set in the Venice lagoon. Very disappointing.
