This was a good listen.
The story gave me insight into Italy's part in the 2nd World War, Mussolini and the hardships that the Italian people faced around his reign.
The story has an interesting plot with a bizarre but surprising twist at the end. Perhaps I would have written the end of the heroin's family history a bit different myself, but it did not make the book a bad listen.
I'll recommend this one.
I found the simularities and differences between the 19th and 21st century love stories striking.This story spoke to the artist within me - I could smell the paint and it just made me want to pick up a paint brush again. The story also renewed an old interest I had in art history. It made me curious about impressionism and the famous artists like Monet that we've heard about many times before.
The reading was very good, but it was made even better by the good writing.
After listening this book I immediately went to look for other books from the same author. The writer did excellent research on art history, which made the book interesting (not boring, as I would have thought reading this comment).
