Description:

Award-winning historical fiction set in 16th-century Venice Benjamin Franklin Digital Award IPPY Award for Best Adult Fiction E-book National Indie Excellence Award Finalist Eric Hoffer Award Finalist Shortlisted for the da Vinci Eye Prize From the author of MADE IN ITALY comes a tale of artisanal tradition and family bonds set in one of the world's most magnificent settings: Renaissance Venice. Venetian gondola-maker Luca Vianello considers his whole life arranged. His father charted a course for his eldest son from the day he was born, and Luca is positioned to inherit one of the city's most esteemed boatyards. But when Luca experiences an unexpected tragedy in the boatyard, he believes that his destiny lies elsewhere. Soon he finds himself drawn to restore an antique gondola with the dream of taking a girl for a ride. THE GONDOLA MAKER brings the centuries-old art of gondola-making to life in the tale of a young man's complicated relationship with his master-craftsman father. Lovers of historical fiction will appreciate the authentic details of gondola craftsmanship, along with an intimate first-person narrative set against the richly textured backdrop of 16th-century Venice.
