Hmm…. Found this in my drafts, not sure why I didn’t publish it! Loved it so much, thought I would just post it now. I wrote it originally on April 25, 2018
Book 25 in 2018.
“The Tuscan Child” by, Rhys Bowen.
I am a Rhys Bowen fan. I have not read anything of hers that I did not enjoy. (However her last book,”In Farleigh Field”, I was left wanting more, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.) Once again she did not disappoint. You can be ready for a little classy love, some mystery and a story that keeps moving.
Joanna Langley’s father has recently passed away. Their relationship had always been difficult and distant. While cleaning out his belongings, she finds a love letter to a woman from Italy, that was written at the end of WWII. Searching for answers as to who her father really was, she makes the trip to Italy to try and uncover the past.
While you are following Joanna’s story from 1973, you are also following her father Hugo Langley’s story from 1944. Both characters are equally intriguing and you are rooting for them both. I know I am completely biased because Rhys is my girl, but I thought this book was excellent. Overall afterthought, another win.
