Daughter of Venice

Great historical fiction book for teens called Daughter of Venice

Seize the Day

This book is about a teenage girl who goes against her parents wishes. This is at a time when a girls job was to marry and care for their husband and his house. Girls were not allowed to learn books and at the time there wasn't any need for them to.

However, Donata loves learning and being outdoors (another no-no without a companion) and through the help of her twin sister she is able to do both, the second disguised as a boy of course!

Don't miss "The Smile," by this author!!
