Item description for Consuelo: A Romance of Venice by George Sand...

CONSUELO: A Romance of Venice (1842-1843) by George Sand is a glorious story of true love, a paean to music and the creative power of art, and a personal crossroads of choices.

Consuelo, a plain young woman with a divine operatic voice and a heart of sterling integrity, rises from her lowly zingarella (gypsy) beginnings to become a prima donna in Venice and in several courts of Europe, bewitching all with her uncompromising artistic excellence and her profound interpretation of music. At the same time romantic choices are laid before her in the shape of a beautiful but frivolous comrade of childhood, a loyal friend and fellow adventurer, a mysterious holy madman who may also be a saint and her one true love, and finally, a king.

And yet, every artist must choose the nature of their personal fulfillment, and Consuelo's life path appears to be ever-dissonant with ecstasy and sorrow, duty and joie de vivre, love and sacrifice. What will the pure-hearted zingarella choose?

Great historical composers and other personages make delightful and surprising appearances all throughout this emotionally intense and exalted novel, often verging on the realm of the supernatural, and considered by many to be George Sand's masterpiece.

Reviews - What do customers think about Consuelo: A Romance of Venice?

Magickal  May 1, 2008
This book was the guiding compass in my teenage years - art, music,coming of age, love, honor, mystery. It is truly remarkable, gripping, mystical, deep, full of underlying human mythology. I think it will hold its grip on anyone regardless of age, however! Man or woman, child or older being. Enjoy, especially those who will travel its path for the first time! I am surprised there is no film based on this book yet - the characters are delicious, Caliostro alone (in a sequel, Countess of Rudolstadt). Probably just a matter of time - no film can do it justice though, but our imaginations can!
Very Gripping Love Novel!!  Oct 4, 2003
I read the novel in Russian. Never read in English, but looking forward to it. I think it is one of the best George Sand's novels. It is full of mysterious and exciting moments. I hope the book in English is as fabulous as in Russian.
