<b>Il Mulino. An old crumbling mill, by a winding river, nestled in the Tuscan mountains. An empty home that holds memories of homemade pasta and Nonna鈥檚 stories by the fire, and later: the Nazi invasion, and a family torn apart by a heartbreaking betrayal.</b><br /><br /><b>Anna</b> is distraught when her beloved mother, <b>Ines</b>, passes away. She inherits a box of papers, handwritten in Italian and yellowed with age, and a tantalising promise that the truth about what happened during the war lies within.<br /><br />The diaries lead Anna to the small village of Rofelle, where she slowly starts to heal as she explores sun-kissed olive groves, and pieces together her mother鈥檚 past: happy days spent herding sheep across Tuscan meadows cruelly interrupted when World War Two erupted and the Nazis arrived; fleeing her home to join the <i>Resistenza</i>; and risking everything to protect an injured British soldier who captured her heart. But Anna is no closer to learning the truth: what sent Ines running from her adored homeland?<br /><br />When she meets an elderly Italian gentleman living in a deserted hamlet, who flinches at her mother鈥檚 name and refuses to speak English, Anna is sure he knows more about the devastating secret that tore apart her mother鈥檚 family. <b>But in this small Tuscan community, some wartime secrets were never meant to be uncovered鈥?lt;/b><br /><br /><b>A stunning tale, inspired by true events, about how the tragic consequences of war can echo through generations, and how love can guide us through the darkest times. Fans of Kristin Hannah鈥檚 <i>The Nightingale</i> and <i>The Letter</i> by Kathryn Hughes will be captivated.</b><br /><br /><h2>Readers have fallen in love with <i>The Tuscan Secret</i>:</h2><br />鈥?lt;b>Wow!</b>...

<b>"Readers will easily fall for Sophie and Ned in their gaslit surroundings." -<i>Library Journal</i>, starred review</b><br /><br /><i>A Courtship of Convenience</i><br /><br />Sophie Appersett is quite willing to marry outside of her class to ensure the survival of her family. But the darkly handsome Mr. Edward Sharpe is no run-of-the-mill London merchant. He's grim and silent. A man of little emotion--or perhaps no emotion at all. After two months of courtship, she's ready to put an end to things.<br /><br /><i>A Last Chance for Love</i><br /><br />But severing ties with her taciturn suitor isn't as straightforward as Sophie envisioned. Her parents are outraged. And then there's Charles Darwin, Prince Albert, and that dratted gaslight. What's a girl to do except invite Mr. Sharpe to Appersett House for Christmas and give him one last chance to win her? Only this time there'll be no false formality. This time they'll get to know each other for who they really are.

She鈥檚 blind, yet he鈥檚 the one who cannot see.<br /><br />Snow might be blind, but it doesn鈥檛 stop her from seeing the powerful and fierce Lord of Fire鈥檚 true nature. He鈥檚 pigheaded, domineering, demanding, and completely frustrating. The few encounters she鈥檚 had with him when he鈥檚 visited the Clan Macardle did not go well, especially when he threatened her pup, Thaw. She intends to avoid the fiery Lord of Fire as much as possible. Unfortunately, there鈥檚 not much she can do when an unexpected snowstorm throws them together along with an unwanted stay at his keep.<br /><br />Tarass, the Lord of Fire, has never met such a willful, disobedient, unpredictable woman as Snow, and her protective, snarling little pup doesn鈥檛 help matters. She infuriates him at every turn and when he鈥檚 forced to save her from freezing to death in a raging snowstorm, he makes it known to her that under no circumstance will he allow the compromising situation to force him to wed a blind woman.<br /><br />There is more brewing then the love they both try to avoid. Tarass is on a mission. He intends to seek revenge against the person responsible for his parents鈥?brutal deaths, while also faced with two murders that must be solved, a myth that has woken and frightened his clan and must be put to rest, and a man who is intent on taking Snow away from him.<br /><br />In the end, the truth that is discovered is far different than what Tarass could have ever imagined and the only thing that matters to him is Snow. There isn鈥檛 anything he won鈥檛 do to save her.<br /><br /><br /><br />
