Review by: Haythem Bastawy on May 14, 2012 :
This is a beautiful adventure into Shakespeare's world. For years the question of what would have happened if Ophilia lived has haunted me and I was thankful when I first saw the title of the story on Izolda Trakhtenberg's website. The language used in the story is both true to Shakespeare in its beauty and its terminology and not as hard on the modern reader.I would love to know what will happen next and I'm looking forward to the next chapter.
