Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A crumbling farmhouse in Puglia, Casa Rossa was bought by Alina Stradas grandfather at a time when no one else wanted it. Now busy preparing it for sale, Alina endeavors to recover the memories it still harbors—in particular of three women whose passions indelibly shaped her familys dark past. Theres grandmother Renee, whose love of novelty won over everything else. Alinas mother, Alba, whose marriage to a screenwriter inspired both great art and unbearable sadness. Finally Isabella, Alinas sister, whose fervent politics drove her to ever-escalating betrayals. Moving from Jazz Age Paris to 1950s Rome to modern-day New York, but returning always to the uncompromising beauty of Italys south, Casa Rossa is a spellbinding story of how loves and losses, secrets and lies, resonate across the generations.

Synopsis:

In this new novel by the author of "Rules of the Wild," a family's secrets collide with history throughout three generations of a 20th-century Italian family.
