Resumen del libro

Set in 1912, Relief follows young widow Katie Larkin as she escapes a troubled past in Boston and pursues a career as a painter in Venice. When she meets the enigmatic ballet-girl Rusala at La Fenice theater, she is instantly infatuated. Rusala introduces Katie to the bohemian underworld of Venice, the world of futurists, muses, and poets. The two women dream of achieving artistic success, of earning enough money to live together, independent of patrons.
Though Katie's painting garners accolades, she and Rusala are never sure of their future. Relentless poverty--and the ghosts of their pasts--threaten to pull them apart. Katie finally takes a desperate step, one that will either ensure the lovers' freedom--or ruin them.
Only then does she discover Rusala's secret, a secret that has been before her eyes all along.
In her debut novel, L.E. Butler draws upon her own background as a ballet dancer, her travels in Venice and Istria, and a decade of research on the era. Relief submerges the reader in a world of beauty and deception, offering an erotic love story and a mystery with a shocking twist.
