The Silk Weaver's Wife feels like a very well researched novel. Debbie Rix is an author that gives attention to details and makes you feel like you are there on Venice. It has its ups and downs for me and as a whole, it was pretty much okay thing for me.
The story follows the alternating points of view of Millie who went to Italy to write a story and later on falling in love with its owner and Anastasia who wanted to get away from her father and went through many things in her life which really made the story for me. I LOVE reading Anastasia's story and see her interest in her art develop. The connection between the two characters also had me thinking quite a bit while reading this which was a great motivation.
Not my type of historical read, The Silk Weaver's Wife, however, is strongly recommended for people who enjoy reading intricately described novels. It's one of those reads who'll give you things about silk weaving and really put you in the places the characters are in. The story was also wonderfully written and quite enjoyable to read although it's not something that kept me wanting to read it non-stop.
