Publisher's Summary

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.

Wonderfully written and read!

What did you love best about Tuscan Rose?

Tuscan Rose was a survivor. That is a characteristic I admire so much. She had a strong faith, and morals.

What did you like best about this story?

The personality of each character stayed believable and consistent throughout the story. I could not turn it off without feeling bereft. This was the best book I've listened to or read in a very long time. I am now downloading another of this author's books.

What about Caroline Lee’s performance did you like?

Everything. So well done!

If you could take any character from Tuscan Rose out to dinner, who would it be and why?

In my mind all the characters are rolled up into one perfect package. I cannot choose...

Any additional comments?

Wow - what a ride! Loved it.

Great Story, poor production quality

The story was enthralling, and the narrator was okay but the whole thing was spoiled by sloppy sound editing. The sound engineer failed to edit out the narrator's inhalations, and there were frequent, annoying clicks and pauses, especially toward the end of the book.

Awesome novel.

Great story and characters, I love Caroline Lee. She was the reason I tried this book. Now I love Belinda Alexander and have already purchased another one of her novels. I highly recommend this book.

Wonderful

Wonderful story... since I have recently been to Florence and the surroundings it was so easy to picture the places and people but I am certain it would be just as enjoyable and interesting if I had not!

EXCELLENT WWII READ!!!!!!!!!!!

I loved listening to this story. Right from the very beginning it grabs you and pulls you in and you can't put it down. The many twists and turns keeps it exciting. The best book I've listened to in quite awhile. The author researched the history of the war and the area of Italy very well. She even includes a dog named Fido who was a real pet that she shared information about after the book is finished. I don't know how this author can top this book! Caroline Lee is my favorite narrator. I could never have pronounced the names of places and people if I'd have read the book. The narrator brought the book alive. Caroline Lee also narrates Kate Morton's books, which are all excellent reads or listens, too.

BORING - convoluted - slow!!

I found this novel was so slow in the beginning that I began to skip to other chapters. Each chapter had the same boring rhythm. My mind was drifting away from the story. I could not continue as it bored me so much so stopped half way. Maybe granny in a rocking chair would like to listen to this slow pace but I had to return it.

Good story but not inspirational.

Didn’t like the bad language introduced late in the book or the graphic sex scenes. Too bad. It would have been great without it.

Faith, hope and love...

The descriptive talent of the writer allows one to feel the anguish and horror of war that scars all the lives it touches. It takes the heart and soul on many emotional journeys displaying what the human spirit can endure. It is an example of the importance in developing a higher level of consciousness so we recognize the futility of war before any thought of it can enter our minds.
