Tiziana Manoretti is shocked when, as the only child of her parents, she is informed that she was adopted when a medical emergency threatens her mother’s life. So begins the journey of Tiz to discover who she is and where she comes from, which leads her from the shores of Canada to sunny Italy. As Tiz is getting closer to the answer, suspicious events start happening and no-one will tell her the truth. To make matters worse, Tiz’s best friend Chris has been sending signals that he wants to change their relationship to be something more. Just when Tiz is starting to think about pursuing a new relationship with Chris, she meets an intriguing and sophisticated Italian man who is taking an interest in her.
Daughter of Mine by Laura Fabiani is a great novel of self-discovery and the power relationships have. Fabiani’s description of the Italian countryside is magical, it makes me want to hop on a plane and fly there immediately. However, the dark undercurrents in the beautiful setting kept me hooked sitting on the edge of my seat as Tiz fought against the roadblocks in her way. I also loved the relationship with Chris, where a best-friend relationship moves into something more with both parties unsure about how to progress and fearing the change will hurt their existing relationship.
Fabiani beautifully explores what it means to be family and the lengths people are willing to go to protect their family from secrets that they mistakenly believe will hurt individuals. Also, the lengths individuals will go to learn those secrets and how the heart has the capacity to love. Great read and I recommend it!
