-Chicago Sun-Times

"Stunning... This storyteller dazzles... The kind of elegant, witty writing that has made Philippa Gregory a superstar of historical romance."

-People Stylewatch

"Fortier's ambitious story merges past with present in a rare feat of seamless writing. Based on historical fact and poetic license, Juliet is a fast-paced, sumptuous read. Fortier's razor-sharp framing of time and insight into her characters make the wholly original Juliet so much more than just another adaptation."

"The perfect beach read: Juliet [is] an addictive tale of a woman who discovers her real-life connection to Shakespeare's Juliet- and a modern-day Romeo."

"Boldly imagined, brilliantly plotted, beautifully described, Juliet will carry you spellbound until the gripping end."
-Susan Vreeland, author of Clara and Mr. Tiffany

"Juliet has it all- history, mystery, and romance. Anne Fortier handles the dual plot lines with mastery, beautifully rendering Siena of the past and the present."

-Kate Mosse, author of Labyrinth

"A feast of myth, history, and tantalizing indulgences- I was swept away, blown away, and taken for ransom. Anne Fortier breathes new life into the Shakespearean tragedy we thought we knew. I fell in love with Juliet all over again."
-Jamie Ford, author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

"This book is a stunner. Elegantly written in exquisite, vibrant, and witty prose that rides well with the clever use of quotes from Shakespeare, Juliet interweaves an astonishing historic take on the tale of the star-crossed lovers with a fast-paced, modern thriller."
-Alison Weir, author of The Lady Elizabeth
