A striking historic rendition of life on the island of Sardinia…Children of the Mists is a story of enduring love. Set in the 1800s, life on Sardinia had barely changed since the time of the Caesars. Two families, the Sannas and the Canus, are united by friendship and honour; love and laughter; joy and promises; omens and superstitions; youth and experience transcend generations. However, for Raffaella and Antonio, their passionate love becomes entangled with revenge. Death changes devotion. Promises are forgotten. Vendettas cannot be ignored. Ambition clouds judgments. Antonio and Raffaella were promised to each other, nothing would keep them apart, not even family. Committed to each other, they fight for their love against all odds…Children of the Mists is a gripping journey back in time that will make the perfect addition to any romance lover’s collection.

I am passionate about Italian historical fiction - any era, any region, so it was with great anticipation that I picked up this book to read and review. And I was not disappointed! The book begins with an interesting plot, but it does not really take off until after the 1/3 of the book. After that point, I became so engrossed in the characters and their plights, that I struggled to put the book down. I have travelled in Italy extensively and many of my relatives live there. Although I've never been to Sardinia, I know many people from that region and can honestly say that the author did an outstanding job of capturing the culture, the warmth, and history of this island. Her travels there definitely come through in the story. A great story, a gripping plot, and endearing characters set in historical Sardinia makes this one great read! Part romance, part family saga, there is plenty to love!

Lexa Dudley (Author)

I am a freelance writer and a try to be poet. I fell in love with the island of Sardinia in 1972 when visiting there with my family; and I became intrigued with the island’s unique culture and friendly people. ‘The Whispering Wind’ is a romantic story which gives a glimpse into the closed world of the Sardinians and reflects my love for the island and its people. I have returned to Sardinia every year, with my husband, since our first visit and have travelled extensively over the island to see the many interesting sites and monuments. I gave a nerve-racking interview on Radio Sardegna in 1978, in very broken Italian, about my affection for the island and enjoyed a close friendship with the late notable Sardinian author Marcello Serra and his family.

Two families, the Sannas and the Canus, are united by friendship and honour; love and laughter; joy and promises; omens and superstitions; youth and experience transcend generations.
