Product Details

Praise

“The Orphan’s Song plunges the reader into the streets and canals of eighteenth-century Venice, where the world of Carnivale roils with music, love, and intrigue. Lauren Kate is a masterful storyteller, with a stunning command of her rich historical material and the ability to draw forth the beautiful and intimate songs of the human heart.”
Allison Pataki, author of Sisi

“Lauren Kate mesmerizes in a tale that brilliantly recreates 1700s Venice – a city of high-stakes intrigue and earthly delights – where a pair of abandoned children find solace in music and each other. I was swept along as their lives formed a tangled knot of betrayal and love, lies and redemption. Marvelous.”
Fiona Davis, bestselling author of The Masterpiece

“In a gorgeous ode to eighteenth-century Venice, Lauren Kate uncovers the intriguing, little-known origin of the era’s most famous Baroque musicians in The Orphan’s Song, in a tale brimming with love, deception, and ultimately, surprising truth.”
Marie Benedict,  bestselling author of The Other Einstein, Carnegie’s Maid, and The Only Woman in the Room

“Delightful . . . Kate’s enchanting story brings the canals and backchannels of Venice to vivid life and will appeal to fans of Elizabeth Chadwick.”
Publishers Weekly

“An operatic and opulently detailed tale of longing, secrets, and high-stakes quests for freedom, love, art, and home…Kate vividly conjures a city of beauty and pain, piety and criminality, helplessness and ruthlessness, while choreographing a suspenseful, soaring love story of anguish, ecstasy, risk, and stunning reversals.”
Booklist

“Kate brings the romance of 18th-century Venice to life in this light historical…it’s an engaging read with likable characters and an emotionally potent plot.”
Library Journal
