The Tuscan Child Reviews

  • Tammy

    The Tuscan Child is a wonderful blend of mystery, long buried secrets and romance set toward the end of WWII. The story is told in the dual view points of Hugo in the 1940's and his daughter, Joanna, in the 1970's. I was quickly pulled into the story and had a hard time putting it down. This is the first book by this author that I have read and I will be checking out her other works.

    I have yet to read a WWII Historical Fiction that hasn't destroyed me by the end or at the very least made me cry. This one was so good and had such a beautiful yet tear-jerker ending! Full review to come closer to release day. Thanks to Little Bird Publicity for sending me an advance copy.

    When I receive a review copy of a book from a publisher, author, or publicity company, whether it's an advance copy or finished copy(early or released) it usually takes me a week or two to finish what

    5 Stars. Wonderful.



    When Joanna Langley's father Hugh passes away in 1973 she returns home to arrange his funeral and sort out his possessions. Among his things she finds a small box and within it a letter addressed to an Italian woman named Sofia. Joanna wasn't close to her father, a rather cold and withdrawn man who became even more distant after the death of Joanna's mother. The mysterious letter gives Joanna a glimpse into her father's heart, revealing to her a man very different from the on

    Many thanks go to Rhys Bowen, Lake Union, and Netgalley for the free copy of this book in exchange for my unbiased review.

    I love the Lady Georgie books and the last stand alone by Rhys Bowen, In Fairleigh Field. The Tuscan Child was too slow for me, and I just could not get into the story line.

  • Siobhan

    Having read and enjoyed Rhys Bowen’s In Farleigh Field, I was more than happy to pick up The Tuscan Child. The synopsis intrigued me, and I was excited to see how the story came together.

    From the very start, The Tuscan Child sucks you into the story. It pulls you into the past, leaving you turning page after page as two interconnected storylines play out. You know they are linked, you have ideas of how, but it is not until you’ve worked your way deep into the story that everything becomes appare

    Barely 3 stars.

    I had enjoyed In Farleigh Field, so I was pleased to get an advance copy of this novel. Bowen is again covering the time period of WWII. The book is told in two parts, Hugo Langley’s escape after his plane goes down over Tuscany in 1944 and his daughter Joanna’s return to their home after his death in 1973 and subsequent trip to Italy.

    This book starts off slowly. I wasn’t immediately invested in Joanna’s story. For starters, I had trouble identifying the era. The only time the 7

    I chose to read this because I enjoy Rhys Bowen's Her Royal Spyness series so much. This was a very different kettle of fish being set half in World War 2 and half in 1970's England and Tuscany.

    A big problem for any book when the author has chosen to write alternately in different time periods is if the two are not perfectly balanced in interest for the reader. In The Tuscan Child I was much more interested in Joanna than I was in Hugo which meant I put the book down and went off to do somethin
