Set during the tumultuous years of the Napoleonic Wars, "The Passion" interwines the desitinies of two remarkable people: Henri, a simple French soldier, who follows Napoleon from glory to Russian ruin; and Villanelle, the red-haried, web-fotted daughter of a Venetian boatman, whose husband has gambled awy her heart. In Venice's compound of carnival, chance, and darkness, the pair meet their singular destiny.

In her unique and mesmerizing voice, Winterson blends reality with fantasy, dream, and imagination to weave a hypnotic tale with stunning effects.

Thank you, booklady331!

March 5, 2006: Like booklady331, this book was not quite what I expected. That is not to say I didn't enjoy it, because I did. I am not one to write book reviews but I will say that there were certain passages in this book that put into words some things I have felt but didn't have the words to describe. I will miss discovering them.
