Publisher's Summary

For decades, signora Francesca Ginori has kept her true identity secret. Living a quiet life now, her children grown with children of their own, she no longer worries about assassins coming in the middle of the night to kill them all.

Then one bright, summer afternoon a stranger appears on her doorstep. He knows her secrets and threatens to destroy her world. It is not gold or power he seeks but something far more dangerous; knowledge. He demands to know the truth about his mother's past.

Francesca is forced to make a most unpleasant decision; tell him the truth or risk destroying not only her own life, but also the lives of her children.

Brilliant , beautiful and WOW!

The story was brilliant, love at its most beautiful and WOW, it was all fiction. It ended and left me pinning,thinking and feeling what if. Loved every bit of it. However, I wish There'd been more about what happened to Charles during the years they were apart.

Too sad !

Too sad ! Every time you think at least a little positive storyline is coming you are
left empty. I love Suzan Tisdale's work so much but this left me pinning and wondering why so much pain all the way to the end.

Wow! Captivating story and narration.

I haven't listened to a story in a long while that kept my attention throughout the whole book. The narrator was spot on and the character development was well done. Even though you may not agree with all of their choices, you can't help but understand and appreciate why they made those choices.

Beautiful

I had the pleasure of reading this beautiful love story and had to purchase the audio book. This story of forbidden love--written in first person -- will keep you on the edge and in the end will leave you brokenhearted. I truly hope that one day Susan Tisdale will continue this story and pick where she left off. It must be told!
