Book Description :

Corbello, Italy, 1947. A woman and a little boy stagger into the ruins of an old house deep in the forest, wild roses overwhelming the crumbling terracotta walls. Since the war, nowhere has been safe. But they both freeze in shock when a voice calls out from the shadows… For young mother Fosca Sentino, accepting refuge from reluctant war hero Richard – in Tuscany to escape his tragic past – is the only way to keep her little family safe. She once risked everything to spy on Nazi commanders and pass secret information to the resistenza. But after a heartbreaking betrayal, Fosca’s best friend Simonetta disappeared without trace. The whole community was torn apart, and now Fosca and her son are outcasts. Wary of this handsome stranger at first, Fosca slowly starts to feel safe as she watches him play with her son in the overgrown orchard. But her fragile peace is shattered the moment a silver brooch is found in the garden, and she recognises it as Simonetta’s… Fosca has always suspected that another member of the resistenza betrayed her. With Richard by her side, she must find out if Simonetta is still alive, and clear her own name. But how did the brooch end up at the house? And with a traitor hiding in the village, willing to do anything to keep this secret buried, has Fosca put herself and her young son in terrible danger? An absolutely gripping and heartbreaking page-turner that explores the incredible courage of ordinary people in extraordinary times. Perfect for fans of Rhys Bowen, The Nightingale, and anyone longing to lose themselves in the mountain landscapes and olive groves of rural Tuscany.

Book Description :

In the terrace courtyard of the palazzo overlooking a sparkling bay, the scent of ripening lemons filled the air. His deep brown eyes gazed into hers with determination and longing. 'Will you do it? Risk everything and join us?' Twenty-one-year-old Imogen Fitzgerald was raised in an English orphanage and never knew her parents. So when World War Two breaks out, she refuses to leave the life she's worked so hard to build for herself, teaching English to little Marco and Eloisa in the beautiful Italian city of Naples. With their father Giancarlo away fighting for the fascists, there's no one else to care for these lost children. Imogen's dark hair and perfect Italian will protect her for now, but if anyone discovers her secret identity as an enemy of Italy, Marco and Eloisa will be left with no one. As the shadows of bomber planes darken the azure-blue waters of the bay, the one person Imogen can depend on is Fabrizio, the children's uncle. He's never seen eye-to-eye with their father, and Imogen is forbidden to speak to him... but whenever they secretly meet in the lemon groves Imogen instantly feels safe. Fabrizio talks passionately of the resistenza, the underground group fighting the regime, and soon Imogen herself is involved - smuggling food along the rocky coast, and even supplying information on Giancarlo to help fight the Nazis and end this awful war. But when Giancarlo suddenly returns, injured from the fighting, Imogen is shocked to find him much changed. Rather than the fascist sympathiser she knew and resented, she sees in Giancarlo a man who would do anything to protect his children and his beloved Italy. Was she wrong to expose him as a traitor? Torn between two sides, Imogen's own life is thrown into terrible danger when a child goes missing and her secret identity is exposed... did she put her trust in the wrong man? And is it too late to save herself, and the children from the horrors of war? An absolutely stunning and evocative historical read about the bravery of ordinary people in dark times, that will sweep you away to the breath-taking coastline of Italy. Perfect for fans of The Nightingale, The Tuscan Child and All the Light We Cannot See.

Book Description :

In a tiny hamlet nestled in the Tuscan mountains, farmers gather after a hard day in the meadows, and children's laughter rings across the square: but one little boy does not join in their play. Behind his deep brown eyes, hides a heartbreaking secret... Ninety years later. When elderly Giselda Chiozzi discovers a lost little boy, curled up asleep in the beech forest outside her grand but empty home, she can't help but take pity on him. It's been a long time since she had a visitor. Waking up to her kind smile and the warming smell of Italian hot chocolate, Davide soon blurts out what drove him into the cold Tuscan night: he's different from everyone else, he's never belonged anywhere, and now his beloved mother is ill. With her heart full of sadness for this lost child, Giselda promises to help Davide trace his family history - she knows better than anyone that connecting with your roots can ground you in the present, and hopes it will make Davide realise that home is where he truly belongs. Together the unlikely pair discover the story of Davide's great-grandfather, Giuseppe Starnucci, a young boy who spent his days milking cows, helping with the harvest, and hammering horseshoes in the forge. But after a terrible incident that changed his life forever, Giuseppe also ran away. Forced to become a man before his time, Giuseppe joined the treacherous pilgrimage all Tuscan farmers must make from the mountains to the plains, sacrificing everything to ensure the survival of their families. Engrossed in the story, Davide is slowly starting to heal when he and Giselda discover a shocking secret which Giuseppe took to his grave - and which now threatens to tear apart Davide's family for good. Will Davide let the pain of the past determine his future, or can he find the courage, love and loyalty within him to return home... and even if Davide himself finds peace, will it be too late for Giselda? Inspired by true stories of rural Italian life, this absolutely stunning historical read is perfect for fans of Dinah Jeffries, Rhys Bowen, and anyone who's ever longed to stroll beneath the cypress trees and taste the fresh mountain air of Tuscany. Previously published as Now and Then in Tuscany. Read what everyone's saying about A Tuscan Memory 'Crammed with stunning descriptions... a beautifully written and well-observed tale that will take you straight into the Tuscan countryside.' Goodreads reviewer 'If you embark on this journey of discovery then be sure to prepare some delicious crostini, in advance, as you will not be able to put the book down... completely absorbing... beautiful... a cleverly crafted narrative.'

Book Description :

"Elegant prose at the hand of an experienced story-teller." -Rhys Bowen, New York Times best-selling author of the Royal Spyness and Molly Murphy Mysteries as well as the #1 Kindle bestsellers "In Farleigh Field" and "The Tuscan Child." THE RUSSIAN GIRL is based on the true story of a woman who escapes from a high security nursing home during the hottest day of the year. The thermometer reads 115 degrees and she is dehydrated, lost, slogging through the burning sands of a New Mexico desert, constantly craving an ice cold Coke. Her delirium reveals a harrowing story of a young immigrant Russian girl forced to come to America in the early 1900s. Her turbulent life is filled with upheaval, lost love, and activism in a crushing, brutal 20th century journey. Minna Goldmich's mind wanders, remembering her childhood as a peasant girl in Russia-the youngest in a line of Jewish healers. Her family only survived being butchered by marauding Cossacks because of her and her mother's unique ability to heal cows. The twelve-year-old Russian girl's life is forever changed when she is almost raped. While defending herself, she accidentally kills her Jew-hating attacker and is forced to flee from the only life she's ever known. Alone and traumatized, her mother sends her to America to live. There, she not only joins the great melting pot of people from all over the world, she meets the love of her life and becomes a visiting nurse on the streets of Harlem. But her chaotic life is always overtaken by violent historical events that continue to reshape not only her life, but the world around her. REVIEWS "Intense, harrowing and oh so real, Bette Lamb's family history is brought vividly to life in elegant prose at the hand of an experienced story-teller." -Rhys Bowen, New York Times best-selling author of the Royal Spyness and Molly Murphy Mysteries as well as the #1 Kindle bestsellers "In Farleigh Field" and "The Tuscan Child." "A sweeping, soaring saga of history, family, the magic of healing, and the mysteries of love, all wrapped up in a page-turning thriller ranging from the Russian Revolution to the 1980s. Fair warning: you won't be able to stop reading 'The Russian Girl' " -Kelli Stanley, author of "City Of Sharks" "The history of a turbulent century across two continents is set inside an exquisite depiction of the end of one small life. And the brutal, sometimes harrowing, realities of that life are touched by magic in a way that feels utterly believable and satisfying. The Russian Girl combines a sharp eye, a big heart, and an irresistible page-turner of a story. Thoroughly recommended." -Catriona McPherson, bestselling and multi-award-winning author of the Dandy Gilver series and "Go To My Grave" "A beautiful, very thoughtful piece of writing, from the heart." -Rita Lakin, author of "The Only Woman In The Room" FROM THE AUTHOR: I am an RN, and yes, an ex-Bronxite. So listening to me talk (hands flying) can be a funny experience. I love to write crime novels and multi-task because I'm also an artist that plays with clay in my studio in my little home in the West (Marin County, CA.). My sculptures and other artistic creations appear in many juried national and local exhibitions, and I sell my work through galleries, associations, and retail stores. Being an RN is a huge clue as to why I like to write gritty medical thrillers with my husband J. J. Lamb.

Book Description :

Patrizia Chen's childhood was suffused with the scent of simmering pots of cacciucco -- a local, hearty seafood stew -- and of the pittosporum blooming along the Tuscan coast. Her family's house and sumptuous garden in the Italian seaside town of Livorno are at the center of this captivating book that weaves together simple, delicious recipes with a love of home, family, nature, custom, and, above all, food. The family cook, Emilia, a feisty, temperamental woman from a nearby fishing village, dutifully produces bland white dishes for every family meal, as dictated by Patrizia's grandfather. But behind the kitchen door it's a different story. One day seven-year-old Patrizia is led by a wonderful smell into the kitchen, where Emilia is preparing a spicy red sauce bursting with garlic and onion. With one bite, Patrizia becomes hooked. In the spacious, sun-drenched kitchen and adjoining herb garden, Emilia takes Patrizia under her wing, disclosing the secrets of her favorite Tuscan dishes. Through vivid descriptions and charming anecdotes, Chen brings to life the white Carrara marble terraces, the coal-burning stoves, antique roses, and sacks of chestnut flour that fill the family house, kitchen, and garden. This delightful and evocative narrative will welcome you into the heart of Patrizia's Tuscan home and allow you to bring the robust flavors of Emilia's cooking into your own kitchen.

Book Description :

From Homer to Tim O’Brien, war literature remains largely the domain of male writers, and traditional narratives imply that the burdens of war are carried by men. But women and children disproportionately suffer the consequences of conflict: famine, disease, sexual abuse, and emotional trauma caused by loss of loved ones, property, and means of subsistence. Collateral Damage tells the stories of those who struggle on the margins of armed conflict or who attempt to rebuild their lives after a war. Bringing together the writings of female authors from across the world, this collection animates the wartime experiences of women as military mothers, combatants, supporters, war resisters, and victims. Their stories stretch from Rwanda to El Salvador, Romania to Sri Lanka, Chile to Iraq. Spanning fiction, poetry, drama, essay, memoir, and reportage, the selections are contextualized by brief author commentaries. The first collection to embrace so wide a range of contemporary authors from such diverse backgrounds, Collateral Damage seeks to validate and shine a light on the experiences of women by revealing the consequences of war endured by millions whose voices are rarely heard.

Book Description :

This book is a distinctively original biography of Galileo Galilei, probably the last eclectic genius of the Italian Renaissance, who was not only one of the greatest scientists ever, but also a philosopher, a theologian, and a man of great literary, musical, and artistic talent – “The Tuscan Artist”, as the poet John Milton referred to him. Galileo was exceptional in simultaneously excelling in the Arts, Science, Philosophy, and Theology. These diverse aspects of his life were closely intertwined; indeed, it may be said that he personally demonstrated that human culture is not divisible, but rather one, with a thousand shades. Galileo also represented the bridge between two historical epochs. As the philosopher Tommaso Campanella, a contemporary of Galileo, recognized at the time, Galileo was responsible for ushering in a new age, the Modern Age. This book, which is exceptional in the completeness of its coverage, explores all aspects of the life of Galileo, as a Tuscan artist and giant of the Renaissance, in a stimulating and reader-friendly way.
