Brilliant debut self published first novel. This book comes with a rare letter of authenticity between the publisher and the author stating that this edition is more of a curio to collectors! No doubt the film will be out in the near future as the film rights have been sold!
From the Publisher
'A superbly crafted novel that deserves to be called the new Captain Corelli or perhaps the new Birdsong...Moving, elegiac and lyrical' Daily Mail
From the Inside Flap
A woman falls from a balcony in Pisa. When Isabel travels to Petriano for a ceremony to honour her war hero father Tom, she discovers that she is caught up in the tragic consequences of the accident.
In the burnt and unstable landscapes of Umbria, Isabel finds echoes of Tom's past in her present that lead to the truth about his disappearance twenty years ago. As she finds a trail through his obsession with the famous leaning tower, she falls in love with a man who shares that passion - and comes to understand the flaws that tip the balance in all their lives, from the dark events of 1945, to a love affair that cannot be forgotten.
A lyrical evocation of the Italian countryside and its people, rich in warmth and humanity.
