This was a free offering from Laura for signing up to her newsletter when i got to the end of The Gondola Maker.
As shorts go it’s a good well written piece in much the same style as The Gondola Maker at around the same time and place.
My only gripe is that i wanted more — which is a complement. It would certainly have made a great first chapter to a much more deeper look into Venice, and Europe, at the time of the Black Death.
Although Laura’s thing is art, so she’s probably not planning to write a full novel on bubonic plague.
Anyways, i’m looking forward to getting around to reading The Painter’s Apprentice in the not too distant. I’m definitely a fan of Laura’s Venice. More please!
