Suzanne Goldring- Her best book to date!
The Girl With The Scarlett Ribbon
By: Suzanne Goldring
This is the fourth book that I have read by this author and, in my opinion, her best yet. She weaves a story between two-time frames and two main characters, as is her style.
The first setting is Florence, 1943 and Gabriella and her artist brother, Riccardo, are growing up and learning how to survive under the Nazi occupation of their country. But who do you trust? Who are your friends, and who are your enemies? How do you protect your own family amidst all this chaos?
Years later, Sophia and her mother are dealing with the death of her artist father, Riccardo. He has left them with specific instructions to go back to Florence and locate his long-lost sister. Soon, Sophia learns about the tragedies that befell her family and the mystery surrounding her father's work.
I could not put this book down. I love the authors writing style. I find her stories to be engaging and keep you up late at night, turning the page. This book will grapple with your emotions and leave you spent!
Her descriptions of Florence were right on point, and I could picture myself in this city. If you enjoy historical novels with an unfolding family mystery, this one is for you.
Thank you to Netgalley, Bookouture and Suzanne Goldring for this ARC.
