Product description


'Elizabeth Buchan's new novel transports us to Rome in the 1970s and Rome today... a tangled net of sex and espionage. If you enjoy a good spy story set in the alluring world of La Dolce Vita, Buchan's gripping read will not disappoint.' - Carol Drinkwater

'Impeccable writing and a fascinating exploration of women's lives. A wonderfully enigmatic and vivid read, I couldn't recommend this novel more highly.' - E.C. Fremantle

'A feast for the senses - love, intrigue, danger and tragedy set against the swooning beauty of the Eternal City... Her most stunning novel yet.' - V. B. Grey

'An exquisite story about the beauty of art and the secrets that lie beneath all our surfaces. Elizabeth Buchan's new novel is both tensely plotted and utterly immersive.' - Jane Thynne

'Elegant and atmospheric, with two complex interlocking stories than join past and present. An excellent read.' - Fanny Blake --This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

A beautifully atmospheric new tale from the prize-winning, bestselling novelist Elizabeth Buchan.

In the Eternal City, no secret stays hidden forever...

Lottie Archer arrives in Rome excited to begin her new job as an archivist. When she discovers a valuable fifteenth-century painting, she is drawn to find out more about the woman who left it behind, Nina Lawrence.

Nina seems to have led a rewarding and useful life, restoring Italian gardens to their full glory following the destruction of World War Two. So why did no one attend her funeral in 1978?

In exploring Nina's past, Lottie unravels a tragic love story beset by the political turmoil of post-war Italy. And as she edges closer to understanding Nina, she begins to confront the losses in her own life.

Praise for Elizabeth Buchan:

'It's a gem of a book... Beautiful, elegant.' Marian Keyes

'Intricately plotted and beautifully written.' Katie Fforde

'An amazing, emotive, heartbreaking but also ultimately uplifting novel. I really loved it.' Laura Barnett --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Elizabeth Buchan began her career as a blurb writer at Penguin Books after graduating from the University of Kent with a double degree in English and History. She moved on to become a fiction editor at Random House before leaving to write full time. Her novels include the prizewinning Consider the Lily – reviewed in the Independent as ‘a gorgeously well written tale: funny, sad and sophisticated’. A subsequent novel, Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman became an international bestseller and was made into a CBS Primetime Drama. She received letters from all over the world after it was published and people still come up at book events to say how much the novel affected them. Later novels included The Second Wife, Separate Beds, Daughters. After talking to some amazing women who had been employed by SOE, she wrote the Danish wartime resistance story, I Can’t Begin to Tell You, which was reviewed as 'nerve-jinglingly engrossing' by the Sunday Times. The New Mrs Clifton is based on a situation that happened in her own family after the war - only in reverse. Her latest novels are The Museum of Broken Promises which Marion Keyes has called 'a gem of a book' and Two Women in Rome.

Elizabeth Buchan’s short stories are broadcast on BBC Radio 4 and published in magazines. She is a past reviewer for the Sunday Times and the Daily Mail, and has chaired the Betty Trask and Desmond Elliot literary prizes. She was a judge for the Whitbread First Novel Award and for the 2014 Costa Novel Award . She is a patron of the Guildford Book Festival and co-founder of The Clapham Book Festival
