This is a fabulous story that had me hooked from the beginning. Tania Blanchard has that amazing ability in bringing the characters to life, and painting a very vivid picture of what life was like for Giulia and her family. I spent many enjoyable hours reading this wonderful book.
Giulia Tallarti dreamed of a much different life than her father had planned for her. Giulia had no desire to end up married with children in the village they lived in, she wanted to get out and live a little. Her father had no idea that she had been learning to become a Herbalist, like Nonna Mariana, who was a folk healer. Giulia jumped at the chance to get away from her father and study at the monastery. While Giulia is missing home, her mind is also preoccupied with the war, and if her loved ones will make it home safely.
The Author has done a great job in creating this special book, and I would certainly recommend it. 5/5 Star Rating.
