‘Many years ago, at a time when the world was on fire, a young girl hid priceless manuscripts where they could not be destroyed. She protected them on this island, but she paid a steep price for it. This is her story…’
Present day, New York: Heartbroken after the end of her engagement, Francesca is desperate for a new beginning. And when her boss unexpectedly asks her to travel to Italy to acquire a rare and very valuable book from a collector, she leaps at the chance.
When she arrives on the beautiful Italian island of Santa Caterina, the last thing Francesca expects is to meet handsome and enigmatic Thiago, an Italian collector also there to buy the manuscripts. But the pair soon realise that the books were hidden during the Second World War and have never been found. With just an old diary to guide them, they begin to piece together the mystery…
As Francesca and Thiago uncover the secrets hidden in the diary, they read the story of Helèna, a young girl who lived on Santa Caterina during the war, and who risked everything to protect the island and its treasures from the Nazi invasion.
When Francesca finally discovers what happened to Helèna during the war, it will change her life forever. But will she be able to take strength from the young girl’s story, and embrace not only her destiny, but also heal her heart?
An unputdownable and emotional story of bravery, love and sacrifice from the author of million-copy bestseller, Watch Over Me, and Amazon No. 1 bestseller, The Italian Villa. Perfect forfans of Fiona Valpy, Victoria Hislop, and The Letter by Kathryn Hughes, readers will be absolutely hooked on The Bookseller’s Daughter.
