A good read with a dose of mystery.

I enjoyed this novel. It's an easy read with enough mystery to keep you reading. The setting in Italy is always going to be a winner. Together writer conjures up the scenery and local residents with a relaxed style. The historical details are convincing. Each character is well conceived and convincing. Again one needs to remember the time the book is set to realise that some steteotyping is reasonable. People did in fact behave differently, especially autocratic husbands and submissive wives. Indeed for the time there is no shortage of scandal. Enjoy this for what it is - a good story.
