Bianca Corrotti's vineyard is more than a piece of mouth-watering real estate in Tuscany. It's an inheritance; a storehouse harboring the secrets of her Uncle Egisto, a world-class sculptor, and his troubled wife -- a woman whose destiny converges with Mussolini's when WWII overtakes them all. Based on a true story, Bianca's Vineyard follows a devoted family of strong-willed men and lion-hearted women waging an epic battle against a gathering storm intent on destroying their lives.

=============================
Another up all night read! This book pretty much had it all -- mystery, romance, war, tragedy, and family. If nothing else, this book is an amazing family saga filled with characters who all have their own personalities and flaws. Too often, writers forget that people are flawed and leave out those imperfections. Not in this book though! On top of that, the attention to historical detail and just detail in general is fantastic! It was very clear to me that the author spent ages doing her research into not only this story, but the times and locations surrounding it. Honestly, the whole book just made me want to visit Italy and stay in some exotic villa while I explore the countryside. I may have to put that on my things to do list...
