Bianca's Vineyard

 

Bianca Corrotti's vineyard is more than a piece of mouth-watering real estate in Tuscany. It's an inheritance; a storehouse harboring the secrets of her Uncle Egisto, a world-class sculptor, and his troubled wife -- a woman whose destiny converges with Mussolini's when WWII overtakes them all. Based on a true story, Bianca's Vineyard follows a devoted family of strong-willed men and lion-hearted women waging an epic battle against a gathering storm intent on destroying their lives.

My Review

 

Set in Italy against the backdrop of the second world war, this book moved me to tears as we follow a family whose lives are torn apart. It isn’t necessarily an easy book to read. It deals with the atrocities of war, family feuds and depression. On the other hand it is a compelling read even if it is somewhat confusing in places. This aside, the author is skilled in making the reader want to know what happens to each character and this is even more heartbreaking when we realize it is based on her family’s true story. It may not be a happy ever after but it is gritty, realistic and ends on a satisfactory note with all the loose ends tied up. A great achievement.

 

 

4.5/5
