The Villa by Rosanna Ley

Post by Clare Bookclub Mod » Fri May 31, 2013 11:50 am

With all this beautiful sunshine this month's book is unashamedly a holiday read and a total escape. Described by Kate Furnivall, author of The White Pearl as "..The perfect summer read'

When Tess Angel receives a solicitor's letter inviting her to claim her inheritance - the Villa Sirena, perched on a clifftop in Sicily - she is stunned. Her only link to the island is through her mother, Flavia, who left Sicily during World War II and cut all contact with her family.

Initially resistant to Tess going back to her roots, Flavia realises the secrets from her past are about to be revealed and decides to try to explain her actions. Meanwhile, Tess' teenage daughter Ginny is stressed by college, by her blooming sexuality and filled with questions that she longs to ask her father, if only she knew where he was.

From an Amazon reviewer:

"A gloriously delicious read, to be devoured in one, preferably on a beach, with a cocktail!"

So, what are you waiting for, dust off the deckchair, grab the sunglasses and sit out with a glass of vino and enjoy The Villa!
