'Wonderful . . . hugely ambitious and atmospheric' KATE MOSSE

'Superb storytelling' DINAH JEFFERIES

Discover a brilliant story of intrigue, romance and betrayal in 1930s Italy, from the internationally bestselling author . . . .

Italy, 1932 - Mussolini's Italy is growing from strength to strength, but at what cost?

One bright autumn morning, architect Isabella Berotti sits at a café in the vibrant centre of Bellina, when a woman she's never met asks her to watch her ten-year-old daughter, just for a moment. Reluctantly, Isabella agrees - and then watches in horror as the woman climbs to the top of the town's clock tower and steps over the edge.

This tragic encounter draws vivid memories to the surface, forcing Isabella to probe deeper into the secrets of her own past as she tries to protect the young girl from the authorities. Together with charismatic photographer Roberto Falco, Isabella is about to discover that secrets run deeper, and are more dangerous, than either of them could have possibly imagined . . .

From the glittering marble piazzas to the picturesque hillside villages and winding streets of Rome, The Italian Wife will take you on an breath-taking journey. Perfect for fans of Dinah Jefferies, Lucinda Riley and Rosanna Ley.
