About the Author
Anne Fortier grew up in Denmark and emigrated to the United States in 2002 to work in film. She co-produced the Emmy-winning documentary Fire and Ice: The Winter War of Finland and Russia and holds a Ph.D. in the history of ideas from Aarhus University, Denmark. The story of Juliet was inspired by Anne Fortier's mother, who always considered Verona her true home . . . until she discovered Siena.
"One of those rare novels that have it all . . . I was swept away."--Sara Gruen"Juliet leads us on a thrilling treasure hunt through present-day Italy that makes the classic tragedy itself spellbinding all over again."--Elle "Boldly imagined, brilliantly plotted, beautifully described, Juliet will carry you spellbound until the gripping end."--Susan Vreeland, author of Clara and Mr. Tiffany "The Shakespearean scholarship on display is both impressive and well-handled."--The Washington Post "Stunning . . . This storyteller dazzles. . . . The kind of elegant, witty writing that has made Philippa Gregory a superstar of historical romance."--The Dallas Morning News "Reads like a Da Vinci Code for the smart modern woman."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
