Description

An enchanting tale of love and forgiveness from the bestselling author of The French Gardener. Ten-year-old Floriana is captivated by the magnificent Tuscan villa just outside her small village. She likes to spy into the gardens and imagine that one day she'll live there. When Dante, the son of the villa's powerful owner, invites her inside and shows her the enchanting Mermaid Garden, she knows that her destiny is there, with Dante. But as they grow up, their romance jeopardizes everything they hold most dear. Decades later and hundreds of miles away, a beautiful old country hotel on England's Devon Coast has fallen on hard times, and its owner, Marina, advertises for an artist to stay the summer. The man she hires begins to transform the fortunes of the hotel, and her family, but why is he really there?

Professional reviews

"Rosalyn Landor's gentle voice and flowing delivery accentuate the lush romanticism of this tale of intrigue, love, and redemption. Two disparate story lines remain unconnected throughout most of the book. The primary story, set in 1960s Italy, follows the relationship of a poor village girl, Floriana, and a wealthy man, Dante, as they struggle to overcome the social barriers that work to keep them apart. In the secondary story line, in present-day England, Clementine and her stepmother, Marina, must find a way to heal their broken relationship, aided by a mysterious stranger who hides an explosive secret. Landor's subtle accents help bring the foreign settings to life, and her characters are both realistic and likable. A.M.R. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
