In Lucia's Eyes by Arthur Japin
This is the book that explains why Cassanova became Cassanova. Cassanova was a real person and he wrote a book about his life. This author takes one detail from that book and weaves this story. It is about Lucia, a young woman who is stricken with smallpox and lives, but is horribly disfigured. In order to survive, she dons a veil and become a courtesan. It's a good book and an interesting story.
