Based on a True Story – in 1960s Italy where honour, respect and the judgement of others are the cornerstones of life, Diana’s youth is lived in fear. When she marries Marco, Diana endures overriding hatred from her mother-in-law. A torrid affair, devastating revelations from her husband and her generous nature cause great suffering. To unravel her daughter’s mysterious death becomes Diana’s only reason for living, but the truth is double sided – and Diana’s attempt to end it all marks the start of a glimmer of light.

“My second helping of Pamela Blake’s work, this book …”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Melissa
My second helping of Pamela Blake’s work, this book based on a true story has all the emotion, drama and intensity as Eden’s Apple, Blake rising to the occasion o her previous work. Diana’s story is dramatic, intense and full of an endurance to find hope. Despite the gritting subject matter, the light at the end of the tunnel foreshadows the plot as Diana searches for answers. As a short novel, it is by no means a quick read as the subject matter and premise are thought provoking and full of literary value.
