The Tuscan Contessa giveaway

A couple of weeks ago I shared my thoughts on The Tuscan Contessa by Dinah Jefferies.

Dinah Jefferies doesn’t hold back or shield us from the brutality during this time in history and the events made me feel raw and exposed (which is a good thing). I felt as if I was living on a knife edge throughout.

In my opinion, this is Dinah Jefferies best novel yet.

Book cover The Tuscan Contessa nestled in lavender and begonias

In 1943, Contessa Sofia de’ Corsi’s peaceful Tuscan villa among the olive groves is upturned by the sudden arrival of German soldiers. Desperate to fight back, she agrees to shelter a wounded British radio engineer in her home, keeping him hidden from her husband Lorenzo – knowing that she is putting all of their lives at risk.

When Maxine, an Italian-American working for the resistance, arrives on Sofia’s doorstep, the pair forge an uneasy alliance. Feisty, independent Maxine promised herself never to fall in love. But when she meets a handsome partisan named Marco, she realizes it’s a promise she can’t keep…

Before long, the two women find themselves entangled in a dangerous game with the Nazis. Will they be discovered? And will they both be able to save the ones they love?

It’s so good I just have to share it!

This giveaway is for my UK blog readers as I will be posting out.
