Children of the Mists
It takes us to the island of Sardinia to a time of long, long ago.
Set well over 200 years ago Children of the Mists is a Love story.
For the inhabitants of Sardinia, life had not altered much since the time of the ancient Romans.
It is a love story, but it tells what happens when revenge and the Sardinian concept of vendetta become enmeshed with a once pure love, the love of two young people, Raffaella and Antonio.
Devotion is set to one side because a death has occurred.
Honour must be avenged, ambitions befoul all they touch or influence.
But the love of Raffaella and Antonio is a strong love.
However, is it a love that can stand against what are traditions and a way of life that predates even the laws and customs of ancient Roman times?
This is a classical romance in the best sense of the term and is an ideal read for someone who wants their romance with some spark and a lot of heart.
It is published by Matador at £7.99 and can be bought from a variety of outlets including the That's Books and Entertainment online book shop, which you will find on the right side of this review.
