Thank you to the author for allowing me to read and give an honest review.
This novel is the story of two woman, A beloved grandmother and a beloved granddaughter.
When Lucy’s grandmother Belladonna passes away, she makes a final request of Lucy,
go to Italy and find Paolo LaRosa and return something to him. Belladonna arranges everything, even down to her traveling companion. As Lucy follows her grandmother’s trail she begins to piece her
This novel goes between Belladonna’s story and Lucy’s story. Belladonna begins to help Paola store art in an old church during the war. Their love story is heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time.
Lucy loses her husband and is widowed, she goes to Italy with her ex brother-in-law, Jack, her first
love. I enjoy them getting to know each other in a different way, as a man and a woman, not related.
This was a well written novel that held my attention though-out. I liked the characters, the author did a great job getting you to care about the women and their stories. This novel has it all: family
drama, secrets, history, forgotten loves and new beginnings.
Thank you Courtney Hunt.
