Daughter of Venice by Donna Jo Napoli
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This title is set in Venice, Italy, 1592. Donata Mocenigo, younger daughter of one of the city's great noble families, leads a life of wealth and privilege. But, she feels constricted by the many rules of etiquette she must observe and rejects the role of dutiful daughter and the future her father has planned for her - either to be married (if she is lucky) or to become a nun. So Donata and her sisters come up with a daring plan allowing her to escape the palazzo and explore. But little does she realize that in doing so she will change her own and her family's lives for ever...

Author Biography

Donna Jo Napoli is a professor of linguistics and author of many distinguished books for young readers. Daughter of Venice was inspired by some research she did into the education of wealthy women in sixteenth-century Italy. "Most of these women grew up economically privileged, unlike me, but I connected with their stories because education opened up my world, just as it opened theirs," she says. A dual citizen of the USA and Italy, Donna lives in Pennsylvania, USA.
