I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
When Margherita’s husband of many years casually announces over dinner that he’s leaving her for his mistress, he puts in motion a series of events that will forever alter the course of Margherita’s life.
Desperately needing a change of scenery, she sets off for her childhood hometown—and the villa she inherited years ago. Despite her intention to sell the house, once Margherita arrives in the sleepy mountain town, she finds she doesn’t want to leave. Soon she begins fixing up the ramshackle villa, exploring the community, and making friends.
While restoring the estate, she unearths deeply buried secrets about the beautiful, mysterious grandmother who left her the house. Can unlocking her family’s past give Margherita guidance as she heads into her uncertain future?
Maria Novella Vigano writes an intimate story about a woman named, Margi. The story was marvelously written. It is told through the eyes of herself and her Grandmother’s diary…
Margi has been married for 20 years to Lucino, and he leaves her for a woman that he believes he is madly in love with. Reeling from the news Margi leaves town to go to stay at her Grandmother’s house in a town called Grisonno, right outside of Milan, Italy. This house has been empty for 40 years, and these walls have a story to tell!!! A story of love, loss and lies.
To say this story is engrossing would not give it justice.
What Margi uncovers is unbelievable. This book had me at the edge of my seat, until the very last page.
If I didn’t believe in true love before this book, I do now.
