WOW! Lori Nelson Spielman the author of “The Star Crossed Sisters of Tuscany”has written a captivating, magical, intense, intriguing and heartwarming novel. The genres for this novel are Domestic Fiction, Women’s Fiction, and Romance. The timeline for this novel is set in the author’s present and goes back to the past 200 years when it pertains to the characters or events in this story. Three second born sisters are obsessed to find out if there is a way to break the 200 year family curse, where the second sister is said to never find love. The author describes her colorful characters as complex and complicated. There are family secrets and betrayals.
Not all of the family are true believers that there is a curse, but many do. When Emilia, a second born sister has the opportunity to go to Italy with her estranged Aunt Poppy, she jumps at the opportunity. I love the way the author vividly describes the events and scenery!
I highly recommend this thought-provoking, memorable and heartwarming story for other readers.
