Each of them has been named in a will, but not one of them knows their benefactress! Four very different people are named in a will. Delia, an opera singer robbed of her voice by illness; George, an idealistic scientist who cannot face what his skills have created; Marjorie, desperately poor and unable to dislodge her writer’s block; and Lucius, ostensibly in control but whose personal life is in chaos. All are summoned to the Villa Dante, home of the late Beatrice Malaspina. But who was she? While they wait to find out, the villa begins to work its seductive magic. With its faded frescoes, overgrown garden and magnificent mediaeval tower, it is unlike anywhere they have been before. Slowly, four characters who have gone to great lengths to hide their troubles find that change — and even hope — is possible after all. But the mysterious Beatrice has a devastating secret to reveal that will affect them all! A beautiful evocation of Italy in the aftermath of World War Two, the personal consequences of living through such a time, and a celebration of humankind’s ability to heal and learn to love again, this most absorbing novel will win Elizabeth Edmondson a host of new fans.
Brief Summary The Villa in Italy by Elizabeth Edmondson
A group of strangers is brought together in a grand villa overlooking the Mediterranean when they are each named in the will of its recently deceased owner. None of them knew the belated woman and have no idea what may have been bequeathed to them. Naturally, there is a catch. The woman left a codicil to the will hidden on the estate and the strangers need to find it by a certain date in order to claim their inheritances. Yes, the plot is contrived, but the characters are so well developed that the reader can’t help but be drawn into the story. Each had been going through a personal crisis when they received the news about the will, and being thrown together in a beautiful setting under such unusual circumstances allows them the opportunity for some deep self-reflection. In the end it really didn’t matter to me if they found the codicil since each had found something more important- peace of mind.
