A Trial in Venice is a very satisfying conclusion to Roberta Rich’s Midwife Trilogy. The villains inveigle Hannah away from her comfortable life in Constantinople and she is once again thrust into the streets of Venice. Only a shaky disguise seems to protect her from the dangers of imprisonment and execution.
Rich’s descriptive passages make the feel of the streets, the smells, the feelings, waft off the page at every turn. I felt for Hannah; her dilemmas, her dangers.
The resolution is riveting and engaging. Often with a trilogy the ending can be quite sudden and all the troubles just smooth away. Not with A Trial in Venice. The ending is a page turner, and the conclusion satisfying.
I recommend this book and this trilogy to anyone who enjoys a good historical novel, where the story is not just a succession of princesses kiting through the castle, but a gripping tale which thrusts you into the era with all its smells, fears and prejudices.

This novel is for the ones that love a little mystery and family secrets. I found it a little long - maybe boring an just didn't finish it.
