Tuscan Rose by Belinda Alexandra

A lush novel set in Florence, Italy in 1914 and then 1929.  Rosa, a young woman of musical talents has to deal with the onset of Fascism.

The author does deep and colorful characterizations.   She makes the story quite personal and draws the reader into the story for their love of the characters.  Rosa, raised in an orphanage by Nuns, she spends the book trying to discover her roots.

The story is beset with intrigue, mystery and betrayal.   My wife was glued to this book for several days and devoured all 582 pages avidly.   This isn't just a romantic novel but more of a historic treatise or coming of age of a young lady in a tumultuous period of Italy's history.

My wife highly recommends this book.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
