9780006499589: A Secret Affair

Thirty-three-year-old Bill Fitzgerald is an acclaimed American television foreign correspondent. War-weary and exhausted after a long stint in Bosnia, he travels to Venice to meet Francis Xavier Peterson, and old friend and war correspondent for Time magazine. Vanessa Stewart is a twenty-seven-year-old glass designer from New York. She's also in Venice , visiting the glass-blowing works in Murano. Whilst at the bar of the Gritti Palace Hotel on the Grand Canal with Frankie, Bill is struck by the dark beauty of a young woman seated alone. The young woman is Vanessa. The three expatriates meet and decide that, as Americans in Venice , they should celebrate Thanksgiving together. And that evening, full of warmth and comaraderie, begins an illicit though fateful love affair.
