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.
Kate Furnivall ist eine beliebte britische Autorin historischer Romane. “This is a vivid and powerful tale where Mussolini’s Italy seeps into the crevices of the characters‘ lives. It bounds on to the opening pages and maintains the pace throughout.” (Leser) (209 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 439 Seiten noch günstig?
