This 1890s novel is relatively short--I read it in a couple of hours. Colonel Dan Steele and his nieces, Pauline and May Beverly, spend June in Venice after wintering in Rome. There, Colonel Steele meets again the woman he has loved unsuccessfully for 35 years, Mrs. Daymond. She and her son Geoffry, and Geoffry's friend Oliver Kenwick, see the sights of Venice with Dan, Pauline, and May. The magic of Venice is in the air.

I enjoyed this light novel. While love is an element, it's not the only emotion driving the characters. The novel is written in a somewhat elaborate style typical of its time.
