Bianca's Vineyard by Teresa Neumann

Book Description:


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:
Copy received from Italy Book Tours 
Four Stars
I really enjoyed this story. There were many different elements that made this story a worthwhile read. First, I loved the historical information. I had a very vivid idea of Italy during Mussolini's dictatorship.  I also loved the love story between Egisto and Armida.  I wouldn't label this a love story because it was a lot about the family saga as well.  The writing was engaging and the characters felt real.
