Today's Dose

The Light in the Ruins

Theresa's Comments:
"I normally read books a little bit at a time, so the fact that I read this book in a matter of days shows how I couldn't put it down! It follows two narratives, both historical: one is in the 1940s, and the other is in the '50s. I was really drawn into the story of the investigator Serafina Bettini, a strong female detective in the Florence police department with a mysterious past of her own. And in addition to the mystery aspect, there is also the romance of Cristina Rosati and a German lieutenant, and it's hard not to hope that they will find happiness despite the tragic times. After I read this book, I went out and bought more by the same author!" (read more)
