Wealthy Italian families, lost love, definite class separation, and family secrets is what you will find in the THE HOUSE OF SERENADES. Many of the characters had secrets, but Giuseppe Berelli had the biggest secret of them all. Giuseppe kept a secret his entire life, and he was now becoming afraid the truth would come out and ruin his life. Giuseppe told stories to cover up his secret and to try to keep his family from losing their class distinction and power.
Eugenia had been very close to her brother, and ran the family home for him.
This is an epic family saga, filled with plenty of tension and a story line that not only fascinates, but is highly satisfying.
The story is at one a catalogue of attitudes to women and the treatment of women in early 20th Century Genoa.
Eugenia Berilli reminisces. Her life had been idyllic before her brother Giuseppe's surprise marriage to Matilda. Read morePublished on August 29, 2012 by SusieH
