Last Voyage of the Valentina by Santa Montefiore

Leave a comment

Growing up in the privileged English countryside, Alba Arbuckle always felt like an outsider. Born in Italy at the end of World War II, she was raised in England by her British father after her Italian mother’s tragic death. The discovery of her mother’s portrait, drawn by her Navy officer father leads this unhappy, lost soul on a journey to find the Italian family she never knew and hopefully some answers about her exotically beautiful mother. On the famed Amalfi coast, in the tiny fishing village of Incantelleria, she discovers not just her family and a sense of belonging but a tale of betrayal and intrigue involving the mother she never knew.
