I’m a sucker for an interesting story retold. In this case, I was always fond of Romeo and Juliet, and I purchased this book on a whim once-upon-a-time and left it alone. Juliet’s Nurse is a story told through the eyes of Angelica (or Juliet’s wetnurse); how she came to be the newborn Cappelletti’s milk mother and watching her wee babe grow into a young lady.

About half-way through I thought this book was going to get slow, although the pace had its ups and downs, I definitely enjoyed the twist which made the characters more intriguing. Obviously people die, if you’ve read Romeo and Juliet, you cannot deny this fact. But in this case several extra characters die, whether it’s “before” the story took place or at some point throughout.

I may consider this a beach read… or a weekend read, or sick in bed… Just read it and find out for yourself..
