A romantic love-story La Tenuta delle Rose by Hannah RICHELL is a magical place for Lillian. The lady, old, alone with her memories and the story of an unforgettable past, one day falls sick and she asks for the arrival of her niece Maggie. After all she grew up Maggie and Maggie is the only person she trusts. Maggie remembers her granny with great affection but the idea of a big house that needs a lot of works of restoration, a granny pretty sick, discomfort her. But her granny called her to Cloudesley not just because of company, no, but because she needs to tell, and where possible setting free the past.
Lillian was married with an influential man but at a certain point, during a sunny summer fell in love for an artist. The sentiment was reciprocated; the two lovers will experience intense moments together and Jack arrived to asking her of leaving the house, the husband, everyone. They would have started a new existence somewhere else. Lillian couldn't abandon everyone; there wasn't just Charles close to him.
The day after a terrible fact will change again the existence of all these protagonists.
It's a story of past and present; of renewal and new beginnings, respecting what it was that house and what it is becoming; what it meant for Lillian and Jack that house and in particular a room, where everything happened.
I love the cover as well! Spectacularly relaxing!
