Read full description of the books The Villa in Italy:I have to admit, I came into possession of this book mostly because I saw a copy for $.99 and because the cover was pretty. To say my expectations were neutral would not be a lie. So it was a lovely surprise to find in this book far more than a surface level romance or chick-lit novel, but rather an elegantly woven story of a cast of well developed characters and a beguiling setting I wanted to jump into. While the plot was, at times, predictable, there were a number of unexpected revelations towards the end that added depth to the story, even if they possibly seemed a little too perfectly coincidental. Overall, a happy surprise! I look forward to exploring what else this author has written.

Read information about the authorBorn in Chile, and educated in Calcutta and London before going to Oxford University, Elizabeth Edmondson divided her time between the countryside north of Rome and the spires of Oxford. She was married to an art historian and had two children.
In Edmondson's words: "I write historical mysteries about love, marriage families and friendship, where the loyalties, feuds, secrets and betrayals of the past cast long shadows. I’m fascinated by characters who are quirky, mysterious, funny, unexpected and interesting and I want readers to share, as I do, in their joys and sorrows.
"My books are set in the Thirties, Forties and Fifties, at home and abroad. With dramatic and glamorous settings from icy lakes to Italian villas, from wintry Budapest to fashionable France, the landscapes are as powerful as the stories are complex. The tense realities of life mingle with supernatural elements : ghosts, prophetic dreams and voices from the past, but fun and humour also dance in and out of the light and darkness of the stories.
"My aim is to enthrall, delight and amuse readers as they are transported to a different era."
