A little confusing
I enjoyed the book as a whole and the 'story' was good but the timelines were not consistant. I found myself having to go back and check to make sure I understood when things were happening or had happened. i.e. there was a photo of Renee' dated 1940 showing how young and carefree she was. But later in the story it was said that she was unhappy and left at around the same time? There were several other timeline issues that I noticed, but like I said I still enjoyed the book so I gave it three stars.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Real Italy, Real Italians, Really Good Read
Casa Rossa, set primarily in Puglia, the heel of the Italian 'boot,' is a fascinating, multigenerational story with an incredible number of twists and turns. Part mystery, part social commentary, part folklore it is written with a great sense of place (be it Puglia, Rome, Northern Italy or New York) and finely chiseled characters. It moves a tad too fast at times, reflecting the author's screenwriting background, but otherwise is a superb novel.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
