Fantasy meets reality

This book examines the hypothetical true story behind one of Shakespeare's most beloved plays: Romeo & Juliet. It is a great intermixing of "history" and fantasy. The author does a beautiful job in moving the story between past and present. There are a few great twists and wonderful characters. I highly recommend this book.

The real R&J

This book takes a look at the hypothetical scenario of "what if Romeo and Juliet were real people once?" and the hunt for them and their treasure they've left behind.... I loved it so much I bought my own copy. Highly recommended!
