The author brings out the emotions of the characters very well, especially when Valentuna's father was dying, and her encountering girls who decided to fight her just before her father's death. Also, the raw emotions on her being told her fiancé didn't want to get married.
This is not only a romance novel, but a novel on true friendship. Valentina has a special friend, more of a confidant name Aldo, who knows her better than anyone else.
Rosanna Chiofalo is a great story teller. Her writing style compliments the story, making this a book that will be hard to put down once you start reading it. I am looking forward to sharing this novel, and reading more of her novels.

I too went to Venice with my Italian husband (he was born in Italy and I met him in mid life when he emigrated to the USA) for our honeymoon. The attraction and the way Vee resisted for a while was typical of my first meeting
with my Italian man. Italian men, those from Italy, are surely different. When I was with my Eneo I felt beautiful.
They seem to really appreciate women. The touching part when they first met rang a bell for me too. My Eneo reached
over and touched me within minutes when we first met. He had seen me a few weeks before and remembered me. It took me a year + before I gave into his seducing but it was the best choice I ever made. He remembered what I wore a year before when he first saw me. He said "come with me, we will play like children" "Would you like to go to Italy or
Brazil. Come with me!". I did and had a most wonderful life I never dreamed of. He is gone for a year now and I have
wonderful memories of all our trips to Italy and yes, Brazil and all over the world. He traveled for business & I went along.
I have joined the Sons of Italy to have an Italian connection. And I am learning, slowly, a little Italian so when
I go back to Italy to visit with some of his friends I will be able to speak a little Italian. But most of them spoke English so it wasn't usually a problem. I look forward to reading Carissima.
