The Tuscan Child by Rhys Bowen

The Tuscan Child by Rhys Bowen

The Tuscan Child is a gentle and beautiful book. It flips between the story of a father, a British airmen shot down near a small village in Tuscany in 1944, and the story of his daughter searching after his death in 1973 for clues to her father’s story. I loved how the book would switch to the past periodically to show what happened to her father since she could never learn the whole truth. I had my doubts that the author would be able to wrap it all up, but she did, and in a very lovely way. There were a few surprises along the way that added to my enjoyment. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys World War II stories.
