The Italian Wife By Kate Furnivall

The Italian Wife By Kate Furnivall

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 cafe 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 . . .

My Thoughts:

I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of this book, which was brilliant as I have never read any of Kate Furnivall’s books before. Even though I don’t read many historical books I did however enjoy this one. It is a very descriptive story which brought the story more to life. I liked the characters and the way Isabella’s relationship with Rosa develops is very intriguing. An enjoyable book and I will be reading more of Kate’s books in the future.

  1. I had read the Shoemaker’s Wife & really enjoyed it. The two stories may be around the same period, but completely different. Your review sounds great & I’ll have to check this one out 🙂
