Wednesday Wonder #6 - The Italian Wife by Kate Furnivall

 I always love Kate Furnivall's covers and her latest offering doesn't disappoint. 

How gorgeous is the cover of The Italian Wife? 

Kate is one of my go to authors when it comes to historical fiction & I'm very much looking forward to reading this one as the setting & time period really appeal to me.

Unfortunately the book isn't out in paperback until next June but for those who can't wait & have a Kindle then you can head over to Amazon & download it now. 

I certainly won't be waiting for the paperback to come out even if it means I won't be able to stroke the pretty cover. 

The Blurb

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. 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 . . .

From the glittering marble piazzas, to the picturesque hillside villages and winding streets of Rome, Kate Furnivall's epic new novel will take you on an breathtaking journey of intrigue, romance and betrayal.
