The Man From Tuscany marks long time Presents author Catherine Spencer¿s debut in Superromance, proving that she can ably handle a more complex story and longer format.
Anna Wexley is 83 years old and in frail health when she tells her granddaughter Carly that she must make one last journey to Italy. Carly is dismayed to learn that her grandmother loved a man other than her late grandfather but agrees to accompany her.
Anna met Marco in 1939, just before war broke out in Europe. It was love at first sight for both of them. Shortly after her return to the US, she is devastated by the news that Marco, active in the Resistance, has disappeared and is presumed dead. In shock, and pregnant with Marco¿s child, Anna marries a childhood friend, Brian.
Six years pass. Then Anna receives a letter from Marco. He is alive and he still loves her. Can she leave her happy marriage, or must she forever deny her love for Marco?
The story of Anna and Marco unfolds in a series of flashbacks and letters which they wrote to each other over the years. It says much for the skill of the author that she skillfully blends the past and present into a seamless narrative that is never confusing and always absorbing.
The fascinating characters and elegant writing make this a book that will cause you to laugh and cry and remember it long after it¿s over.
