A Haunting, Heroic Thriller Set in Nazi-Occupied Venice

At his beloved grandfather’s deathbed, a teenage boy receives a yellowing manuscript which reveals his grandfather’s darkest secrets from Nazi-occupied Venice in 1943. The manuscript describes how the grandfather’s support for a murdered Jewish woman drew the attention of the underground resistance. The Garden of Angels is a gripping tale, both for its imagining of war-torn Venice and the timeless portrait of life under Fascism.
