Book Description

After the breakdown of a relationship, Daniela (Dani) Sante moves from Perth where she has lived for a year, and returns to her hometown, Waroona. Surprised by house-guest, Antonio Bartolini, Dani is not pleased that he is residing in her home.
The return to Waroona does not give Dani the comfort she had hoped for. The drama taking place around her is unsettling and she longs for peace, but the problems of family and friends are not easily pushed aside. When the police arrive at her door, Dani realises that her Perth ‘home’ was not the safe haven she thought it was.
Added to this, is her growing resentment towards Antonio. Having struggled to accept her Italian heritage for most of her eighteen years, Antonio represents all that she loathes. The fact that he is extremely handsome and charming only adds to the conflict within her.
Will Dani overcome her bias and accept Antonio for who he is? And will she follow her heart, before it’s too late?

3.0 out of 5 stars A gentle pleasant read December 24, 2012
Format:Paperback
A gentle pleasant read but nothing to excite me, passed on to me by an Australian friend it sounded interesting mainly because of the Italian link. The layout of the book was a little strange with an unusual page layout and over use of quotation marks which I found distracting.

Set in the nineteen eighties which I think of as fairly modern times I found the way our heroine was treated by her parents difficult to understand, but then maybe that is because I know next to nothing about life in Australia. Maybe it was really hard still in those days for families from Italy and other countries, there is certainly an international cast of characters which helps create an idea of life in Australia then for them as foreigners.

The novel tells the story of an eighteen year old Australian - Italian girl who has just spent a year studying in Perth and returns home to I guess the outback, the way she describes her home town of Waroona, after breaking up with her boyfriend. There is not really much of a storyline as the book concentrates on relationships, mainly those of our heroine Daniela Sante with the people that surround her, in particular with her parents new house guest Antonio. Having struggled all her young life to accept her Italian heritage this newcomer in her life represents all that she has come to hate.

There is really nothing more I can say about this, without spoiling it for those that might want to read it. If you enjoy a relationship driven novel and are interested in learning more about the life of Australian - Italian families in the eighties then you may well like this more than I did.
