This book was previously published as Aria in 1996 under author's pen name, Lucinda Edmonds, and has now been re-written and re-published as The Italian Girl. Having previously read Riley's book, The Seven Sisters, I'm quite a fan of her writing style which is exquisite. Her carefully chosen words as well as her pouring emotions made the story passionate and completely romantic, so if you've have fallen recently in love, then this book will sync as per your emotions.
Lucinda Riley (née Edmonds) (1966, Lisburn) is an Irish author of popular historical fiction and a former actress. She spent the first few years of her life in the village of Drumbeg near Belfast before moving to England. At age 14 she moved to London to a specialist drama and ballet school.
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 those closest to them.
She wrote under the penname Lucinda Edmonds which was her maiden name. She got a three book deal with Simon and Schuster. During this time, she found out she was pregnant with their first child Harry.
