Within days the cityis infected with bubonic plague—and the Turkish sultan has his revenge.But the ship also holds a secret stowaway—Feyra, a young andbeautiful harem doctor fleeing a future as the sultan's concubine. Only herwits and medical knowledge keep her alive as the plague ravages Venice.In despair, the doge commissions the architect AndreaPalladio to build the greatest church of his career—an offering to God somagnificent that Venice will be saved.
