    A mysterious stranger known as 'The Wolf' leaves an infant with the sisters of Santo Spirito. A tiny silver key hidden in her wrappings is the only clue to the child's identity and so begins a story as intriguing and beautiful as the city of Florence itself. Belinda Alexandra's new novel, Tuscan Rose, is set in Italy during the time of Mussolini. This richly woven tale of passion, love, longing, witchcraft and magic promises to be everything her readers love and more.

    Ashley says: "Such a beautiful listen...."
    "accurate and sensitive novel set in Tuscany"
    Overall

    This was another excellent read of a Belinda Alexandra novel and kept me absorbed throughout the entire story. It was well researched and depicted this era of Catholicism in Italy with great accuracy. Rosa’s lack of knowledge about sexuality would have been very common for a child brought up in a convent as an orphan at that time. This story is inspirational portraying Rosa as a young woman who developed the strength and endurance to face extreme hardships and injustice which were prevalent pre WW2 and during the war for working class impoverished young women. Rosa suffered the harsh prejudices of being a single mother that was typical of those times when in fact she was a rape victim but desperate to love and care for her baby. Interestingly Alexandra weaves in a similar vegetarian theme to the one in her Silver Wattle novel. Highly recommended.
