For how thy memory has lingered onIn spite of cruelest winters drear and howlBy inner mirror seen; Ive dwelled upon,I must confess, my treachery most foul.Did Shakespeare pen a series of passionate sonnets, unknown to modern scholarship, ardently praising a mysterious dark-haired beauty? This tantalizing question is raised in a letter to literature professor Rose Asher. But the letters author, Roses star pupil, is not telling. A troubled, enigmatic young man, he plunged to his death in front of the colleges entire faculty, an apparent suicide. Determined to find the truth, Rose journeys from New York to Italy, back to the magnificent Tuscan villa where as an undergraduate she first fell in love.La Civetta is a dreamlike place, resplendent with the heady scent of lemon trees and the sunsets ocher wash across its bricks and cobbles.

A folio containing what some believe to be one of Shakespeares lost sonnets has vanished, and literary immortality awaits whoever finds the manuscriptas do a vast Italian estate and a Hollywood movie deal.
