Book Review: The Tuscan Child by Rhys Bowen

516RInLmgQL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_If you enjoyed reading Captain Corelli’s Mandolin by Louis De Bernieres then The Tuscan Child by Rhys Bowen will appeal to you, I’m sure of this. The story is told from the point of view of Sir Hugo Langley in 1944 when, during the war, his plane crashed in Tuscany, and his bereaved daughter, Joanna, in 1973 and her journey to find out the truth about her father’s Italian recovery/adventure/mystery. I enjoyed the two time settings, one employed first person, the other third person writing. Platefuls of Italian food and culture mentions- you could be there!

Page turner-ability rating 5/5 stars.

Three word review : Mysterious Tuscan Interlude.

Happy Reading! Samantha

Welcome! Thanks for visiting my author blog. I write every day, I read every day, so we most likely have lots in common! I currently have seven books available on Amazon '1962', 'Piccalilly' 'Quirky Tales to Make Your Day' and the Curmudgeon Avenue series. I live near Manchester UK with my fabulous husband and wonderful, gorgeous grownup daughter, two cats and one dog. I write three types of blog; 1) Fiction written by myself and accompanied by one of my suitable photos or sketches. 2) Ramblings and amusing observations on life. I do not tend to write about anything serious (but admire those that do). 3) NEW! Book reviews. Although my priority is completing my next novel, if I like something I will share it. If I don't have anything nice to say, however, I won't say anything at all. Please see 'contacts' on menu. Sharing is caring, and so is reciprocation!
