From the Publisher
Set during the tumultuous years of the Napoleonic Wars, The
Passion intertwines the destinies of two remarkable people:
Henri, a simple French soldier, who follows Napoleon from glory to
Russian ruin; and Villanelle, the red-haired, web-footed daughter
of a Venetian boatman, whose husband has gambled away 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.
