First time read by this author which I quite enjoyed and even though it's a novel contains enough historical storyline to give an insight into life during that time in Italy. There are twists and turns with the main characters right up to the end.
Very interesting time in history which I knew very little - 1932 in Italy with Mussolini and his Blackshirts! It is a novel of mystery combined with a love story and captivating. Isabella the heroine is fearless in her search for truth and retribution of her husband's murder and her own brush with death. Roberto is charming yet ruthless and risks all for Isabella. It makes for great reading and I recommend this book highly.
This is a well written tale of love and determination to succeed despite apparently impossible odds. There are many unexpected twists which carry the reader through the characters' stresses and successes.
