Their love is honest and raw and all consuming.But it's also dangerous. How much will they have to sacrifice before they can be together?In a masterful adaptation faithful to Shakespeare's original text, Gareth Hinds transports readers to the sun-washed streets and market squares of Shakespeare's Verona, vividly bringing the classic play to life on the printed page.
