Suffused with Florentine sunshine and history.
Moving from the end of WWII as Ulysses Temper, and English soldier, falls in love with Florence even as it lies in partial ruins. As he helps to rescue hidden artworks from the destruction of war, a new world of beauty opens up and entrances him. The story meanders beautifully through the lives and loves of the people he cares for, both in Florence and London, over the following decades. Absolutely gorgeous - I did not want to let these characters go!
