<b>An enthralling story of secrets and discovering love where you least expect it, in <i>The Tenth Gift </i>the art of embroidery uncannily links two fascinating women of different eras and their equally passionate love stories</b><br /><br />In an expensive London restaurant, Julia Lovat receives a gift that changes her life. At first glance it is a book of exquisite seventeenth-century embroidery patterns belonging to a woman named Catherine Ann Tregenna. Yet in its margins are the faintest diary entries; they reveal that 鈥淐at鈥?and others were stolen from their Cornish church in 1625 by Muslim pirates and taken on a brutal voyage to Morocco to be auctioned off as slaves. Captivated by this dramatic discovery, Julia sets off to North Africa to determine the authenticity of the book and to uncover more of Cat鈥檚 mesmerizing story. There, in the company of a charismatic Moroccan guide, amid the sultry heat, the spice markets, and exotic ruins, Julia will discover secrets long buried. And in Morocco鈥攋ust as Cat did before her鈥攕he will lose her heart.<br /><br />Though they live almost 400 years apart, the stories of these two women converge in an extraordinary and haunting manner that begs the question, is history fated to repeat itself? <br /><br /><b><i>鈥淭he Tenth Gift</i> is wildly yet convincingly romantic鈥攁 rare combo . . . both a sensitive portrayal of Muslim culture and a delectable adventure of the heart.鈥濃€?lt;i>USA Today</i></b>

<b>Il Mulino. An old crumbling mill, by a winding river, nestled in the Tuscan mountains. An empty home that holds memories of homemade pasta and Nonna鈥檚 stories by the fire, and later: the Nazi invasion, and a family torn apart by a heartbreaking betrayal.</b><br /><br /><b>Anna</b> is distraught when her beloved mother, <b>Ines</b>, passes away. She inherits a box of papers, handwritten in Italian and yellowed with age, and a tantalising promise that the truth about what happened during the war lies within.<br /><br />The diaries lead Anna to the small village of Rofelle, where she slowly starts to heal as she explores sun-kissed olive groves, and pieces together her mother鈥檚 past: happy days spent herding sheep across Tuscan meadows cruelly interrupted when World War Two erupted and the Nazis arrived; fleeing her home to join the <i>Resistenza</i>; and risking everything to protect an injured British soldier who captured her heart. But Anna is no closer to learning the truth: what sent Ines running from her adored homeland?<br /><br />When she meets an elderly Italian gentleman living in a deserted hamlet, who flinches at her mother鈥檚 name and refuses to speak English, Anna is sure he knows more about the devastating secret that tore apart her mother鈥檚 family. <b>But in this small Tuscan community, some wartime secrets were never meant to be uncovered鈥?lt;/b><br /><br /><b>A stunning tale, inspired by true events, about how the tragic consequences of war can echo through generations, and how love can guide us through the darkest times.

<b>A stunning debut for author Evie Dunmore and her Oxford Rebels in which a fiercely independent vicar's daughter takes on a powerful duke in a love story that threatens to upend the British social order.</b><br /><br /> <i>England, 1879.</i>聽Annabelle Archer, the brilliant but destitute daughter of a country vicar, has earned herself a place among the first cohort of female students at the renowned University of Oxford. In return for her scholarship, she must support the rising women's suffrage movement. Her charge: recruit men of influence to champion their cause. Her target: Sebastian Devereux, the cold and calculating Duke of Montgomery who steers Britain's politics at the Queen's command. Her challenge: not to give in to the powerful attraction she can't deny for the man who opposes everything she stands for.<br /><br /> Sebastian is appalled to find a suffragist squad has infiltrated his ducal home, but the real threat is his impossible feelings for green-eyed beauty Annabelle. He is looking for a wife of equal standing to secure the legacy he has worked so hard to rebuild, not an outspoken commoner who could never be his duchess. But he wouldn't be the greatest strategist of the Kingdom if he couldn't claim this alluring bluestocking without the promise of a ring...or could he?<br /><br /> Locked in a battle with rising passion and a will matching her own, Annabelle will learn just what it takes to topple a duke....
