That Summer in Sicily by Marlana de Blasi

That Summer in Sicily: A Love Story That Summer in Sicily: A Love Story by Marlena De Blasi

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
I have read other books by this author, and really enjoyed them. Maybe because she writes so well about Italy/Venice/food etc.

This time she and Fernando travel to Sicily to do a story for a magazine.

They become immersed in a place called Donnafugata, which is almost like an old palace, situated in the middle of the Island. It is run by Tosca Brozzi, a very proud and beautiful lady.

Her story tells of being sold by her father (at age 9) to Leo, the local landowner and Prince, and how she came to love him.

Very interesting story
