Noni de Poggio delle Corti PG, Italy
A gripping mystery told from two viewpoints in the past and the present. I loved the way the author described scenes using all the senses. An example is her description of little boys as smelling hamstery and biscuity. I was quite taken with her sensual writing and then I realized she also wrote Chocolat (talk about sensual!). So pick it up for the sheer beauty of her writing, but enjoy it also for the mystery and surprise twist at the end.
Terrific book with great insight!
