    It is 1943: Tucked away in the idyllic hills south of Florence, the Rosatis, an Italian family of noble lineage, believe that the walls of their ancient villa will keep them safe from the war raging across Europe. Eighteen-year-old Cristina spends her days swimming in the pool, playing with her young niece and nephew, and wandering aimlessly amid the estate's gardens and olive groves. But when two soldiers, a German and an Italian, arrive at the villa asking to see an ancient Etruscan burial site, the Rosatis' bucolic tranquility is shattered.

    Taryn says: "Kept me listening"
    "Suspenseful but a very sad story"

    What did you love best about The Light in the Ruins?

    The way the story was told, it kept me guessing until the end of the book.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It wasn't who I thought if would be.
