Tuscan Rose

Synopsis

A big, luscious, can't-put-it-down saga from bestseller Belinda Alexandra, a story of tragedy, romance and mystery, set against the beauty of Florence in the terrifying years of Mussolini.

A tale of sacrifice and reward, of beauty and horror ... and of redemption.

A mysterious stranger known as 'the Wolf' leaves an infant with the sisters of Santo Spirito. A tiny silver key hidden in her wrappings is the one clue to the child's identity ...

When Rosa turns fifteen, she must leave the nuns who have raised her and become governess to the daughter of an aristocrat and his strange, frightening wife. their house is elegant but cursed, and Rosa - blessed with gifts beyond her considerable musical talents - is torn between her desire to know the truth and her fear of its repercussions. Meanwhile, the hand of Fascism curls around beautiful Italy, threatening her citizens.

In the face of unimaginable hardship, will Rosa's intelligence, intuition and her extraordinary capacity for love be enough to ensure her survival?
