About the Novel:
Twelfth Night is a comedic story of mistaken identity and unrequited love. Viola is a single woman left alone after surviving a shipwreck. She has lost her twin brother in the same wreck and now must navigate a new country on her own. She decides to disguise herself as a man named Cesario to work in a nobleman’s home. While working for Orsino, Viola falls in love with him. But he is in love with Olivia, another woman who recently lost her own brother. Orsino sends Viola to Olivia’s household in attempts to convince her of Orsino’s love. Olivia refuses, instead falling for Viola as Cesario. Things get more complicated when Viola’s brother—Sebastian—turns up alive and well. The twins get mixed up as one another and find themselves in one predicament after another. Things come to a head when both Viola and Sebastian are discovered to be different from the fictional Cesario.
