Book Review – The Madonna of Pisano

Touted as “A new twist on The Scarlet Letter”, this book held my attention from the first page. I felt it was a healthy mix of The Scarlet Letter (which I have not read, but will) and The Thornbirds.


Set in Sicily in the 1800s, it’s a story of rape, betrayal, disgrace, love, and forgiveness. It’s a real page-turner and will keep your attention throughout the book.


I received a complimentary copy from the author in exchange for an honest review and I honestly loved this book. I’m encouraging my husband to read it and will most likely offer it to the book club at my church to read. There are, to date, two more books in this series that I plan to also read.


Read it! You won’t be disappointed.
