Book Preview: "The House of Serenades"
In 1910 Genoa, an Italian port city of divided classes and ancient power struggles, the Berillis are wealthy, powerful, and respected—until their darkest secrets begin to surface. Once the police intervene and the gossip grapevine is set in motion, The Berillis’ demise is unavoidable. But love lives on, and there’s a mandolin player in town who is not giving up on the girl of his dreams. Never underestimate the power of music.
A brilliant portrait of the Italian upper class at the turn of the 20th century (and back in time to 1850) and a heartfelt denunciation of women repression.
