Read full description of the books:



The year 1470 was a tough year to be a glassblower if you were not Venetian by birth. Not only was it illegal, you could be tried by torture into confessing and imprisoned or killed.

So when Zorzi the Dalmatian was taken in as servant to famous glass blower Angelo Beroviero, much effort was put forth to keep Beroviero's glass secrets safe and Zorzi out of public suspicion.

Even so, as the years pass, Beroviero grows to trust Zorzi even more than his own sons, and Zorzi's artistic skill becomes manifest in the many experiments Beroviero has him perform.

But jealousy will brood, accusations will be uttered and then there is the small matter of Zorzi's love for Beroviero's daughter, Marietta, forbidden both by class and race, and all the more impossible when Marietta is formally betrothed to a man of name (though ill repute) in the city.

This is quite the tale, lots of fascinating descriptions of glass blowing, as well as some twists and turns in the form of illegal gambling dens, a secret society, an exotic slave/concubine and a pirate.

I really enjoyed this and could have given it 5 stars with just a bit more character development. Recommended for lovers of turn of the century romances.

Read information about the author

Ebook Marietta: A Maid of Venice read Online! Francis Marion Crawford (1854-1909) was an American writer noted for his many novels. He was born at Bagni di Lucca, Italy. In 1879 he went to India, where he studied Sanskrit and edited the Allahabad Indian Herald. Returning to America he continued to study Sanskrit at Harvard University for a year, contributed to various periodicals, and in 1882 produced his first novel, Mr Isaacs. This book had an immediate success, and its author's promise was confirmed by the publication of Doctor Claudius: A True Story (1883). After a brief residence in New York and Boston, in 1883 he returned to Italy, where he made his permanent home. He also published the historical works, Ave Roma Immortalis (1898), Rulers of the South (1900) renamed Sicily, Calabria and Malta in 1904, and Gleanings from Venetian History (1905). The Saracinesca series is perhaps known to be his best work, with the third in the series, Don Orsino, set against the background of a real estate bubble, told with effective concision. A fourth book in the series, Corleone, was the first major treatment of the Mafia in literature.
