Plot[ edit ] Victoria de Loredani is the beautiful, spoiled daughter of the Marchese di Loredani and his wife, Laurina. Victoria, her brother Leonardo, and her parents reside in a palazzo in Venice, Italy. They live in happiness until the Marchese's friend, Count Ardolph, visits from Germany.
Ardolph takes pleasure in destroying the reputations of pure women, and breaking up happy marriages. He quickly sets his sights on Laurina di Loredani.
Laurina's vanity makes her susceptible to Ardolph's advances, and he seduces her away from the husband she claims to love.
They disappear from Venice together, which sets off a cascade of increasingly tragic events. After Laurina elopes, Leonardo disappears from Venice without explanation, leaving only Victoria and her father in the palazzo. One year later, the Marchese encounters Ardolph in the streets of Venice.
They duel, and Ardolph stabs the Marchese -- a wound that puts the Marchese on his deathbed.
Laurina pays him a final visit, and the Marchese expreses his dying wish that Laurina will find Leonardo, reclaim her children, and leave Venice. Berenza quickly falls in love with Victoria, but after he overhears her curse her mother, Berenza becomes wary of her evil character.
Laurina and Ardolph do not approve of Berenza, so Laurina forges a letter in Victoria's handwriting persuading Berenza to leave Venice. Ardolph and Laurina then send Victoria to live under the tyrannical rule of Laurina's cousin, Signora di Modena. With the help of her servant, Victoria escapes the Signora's household, disguises herself as a peasant, and returns to Venice.
She reconciles with Berenza, and they begin living together. Berenza tells her of his former mistress Megalena, who is known for her jealousy. One night, an assassin enters the home of Victoria and Berenza. He attempts to stab Berenza in his sleep, but Victoria awakens and defends her lover by taking the dagger in her arm instead.
The man flees, and Berenza awakens deeply shaken by the occurrence. He is impressed by Victoria's action and no longer questions her love for him.
Victoria decides not to tell Berenza that she noticed that her long-lost brother, Leonardo, was the assassin. The book then switches to the point of view of Leonardo, recounting what happened to him after his mother abandoned him and he ran away.
First, he found shelter with the Zappi family. He fell in love with the family's daughter Amamia, but the mother, Signora Zappi, fell in love with him. Leonardo rejected her advances. Signora Zappi then tried to frame Leonardo, falsely accusing him of rape. Leonardo did not defend himself; instead, he left the Zappi household.
Leonardo then took shelter with an old woman, Nina, who was mourning the death of her son. Unfortunately, Nina then passed away, and Leonardo had to move again.
Finally, he returned to Venice, where he caught the eye of the fatal Megalena Strozzi. She convinced him to take her as his mistress, told him of the death of his father, and began to control his every move.
