The title of this book suggests a romantic read. The reality of this book is a murder/mystery. It’s a very short read but boy, the author packs so much adventure and intrigue into the book that you don’t really feel cheated by it not being longer.
The story moves back and forth between the end of World War 2, to 1963 and to Easter 2011. It can be a little confusing at times but I found re-reading the opening lines or the end of the previous chapter brought me back up to speed without any difficulty. the story centres around certain individuals in the tale and leads up to the revelation of the killer of Moresco, his death is what starts the story off.
It has been translated into English and sometimes this interrupts the flow of the narrative, this is what has happened here. don’t get me wrong, you can easily understand the story but I feel it has lost some of its natural flow in the translation. All in all a pleasant short read.
