Publisher's Summary

Set against a memorable backdrop of Lucinda Riley's trademark evocative locations, The Italian Girl unfolds into a poignant and unforgettable tale of love, betrayal and self-discovery.

Nothing sings as sweetly as love, or burns quite like betrayal.

Rosanna Menici is just a girl when she meets Roberto Rossini, the man who will change her life. In the years to come, their destinies are bound together by their extraordinary talents as opera singers and by their enduring but obsessive love for each other - a love that will ultimately affect the lives of all those closest to them. For, as Rosanna slowly discovers, their union is haunted by irreversible events from the past....

Rosanna's journey takes her from humble beginnings in the back streets of Naples to the glittering stages of the world's most prestigious opera houses. 

First published as Aria under the name Lucinda Edmonds, now extensively rewritten.

One of the best books I’ve listened to

Lucinda Riley is a brilliant story teller. I enjoyed every part of this book. I found it difficult not to listen to it all in one go!

Yolanda kettle is an excellent narrator, and so enjoyable to listen to.
