Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
The Tutor by Andrea Chapin is part history and part romance. It creates a fiction around one of the lost years of William Shakespeare's life, with the focus on his writing of Venus and Adonis. The book is well researched about the historical time. The romance and characterizations are less plausible and come to a predictable conclusion.
