Friendship, food and romance await on this magical Italian island. It's the perfect summer read.

Friendship, food and romance await on this magical Italian island. It's the perfect summer read.

'A true feast for the senses' Jenny Ashcroft, author of Beneath a Burning Sky'A bit of sunshine and romance and a whiff of ethereal mystery. What's not to like?' Trip FictionThe scent of freshly baked biscuits, lemon and aniseed reminds Elettra of her mother's kitchen. But her mother is in a coma, and the family bakery is failing. Elettra is distraught; she has many unanswered questions about her mother's childhood - Edda was a secretive woman.

The only clue is a family heirloom: a necklace inscribed with the name of an island. Elettra buys a one-way ticket to that island, just off the coast of Sardinia. Once there, she discovers a community of women, each lost in their own way. They live in a crumbling convent, under threat from the local mayor and his new development plan. It is within the convent's dark corridors and behind its secret doors that Elettra discovers a connection to her mother's past. She also falls in love again: with friendship, baking and adventure.

**Features real recipes throughout including aniseed bread, rose- and honey-infused wine and spiced biscuits**
