5.0 out of 5 stars Atmospheric, sensitive, haunting novel
The plot of The Road to Urbino keeps you reading, the ideas set you thinking, and the atmosphere stays with you. I found the characters sensitively drawn - no heroes nor villains, but real people with a strong physical presence. It's about colour and light and the power of painting, as much as about selfishness and love. The story of Sri Lanka is woven in, but the book is...

Roma Tearne hasn't done her homework. Urbino is not in Tuscany; it's in Le Marche.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another marvellous book from RomaTearne, 23 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am never disappointed with a Roma Tearne book and I have read them all.
This is another delightful novel, she is wonderful at describing the various areas that are visited by the characters and their personalities fly off the page.

5.0 out of 5 stars EVOCATIVE READ, 25 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Road to Urbino (Paperback)
I was attracted by the publicity about this novel because of my interest in the early Renaissance artist, #Piero della Francesca,whose works are featured in the book, and because I run on #Facebook THE PIERO DELLA FRANCESCA SOCIETY (UK). The novel kept me page-turning whenever I had a spare moment. It is beautifully written, evocative of Tuscany and Umbria, and penned with economy. No need to be a Piero lover to enjoy THE ROAD TO URBINO. Just open it and read. JAMES WATSON, author of Teen fiction novels TALKING IN WHISPERS, TICKET TO PRAGUE, FAIR GAME: THE STEPS OF ODESSA, all now available on Kindle.
