Determined to find the truth, Rose journeys from New York to Italy, back to the magnificent Tuscan villa where as an undergraduate she first fell in love.La Civetta is a dreamlike place, resplendent with the heady scent of lemon trees and the sunset’s ocher wash across its bricks and cobbles.

Great story as always, Carol Goodman is one of my favorite writers. They never disapoint. Always well written and engaging. I have read 5 or 6 of her books.

This contemporary tale involves a comparative literature professor, Rose Asher, at a small liberal arts college in New York City. When one of her students dies, she is drawn back to Italy and her past intersects with her search for poems by an Italian woman who may be Shakespeare's Dark Lady. Players include a movie producer working on a film based on her student Robin's screenplay, her formeI lover and his wife and son, the dean and her current lover, another professor and his wife, and the owner of the villa where the school's Italian program resides. The author's descriptions made me really see the places and objects in her stories.The precious stone inlay floor (pietra dura) of rose petals/ blood was particularyly resonant to me. I don't know what it is about her writing, but I have this response to almost all of her books. I enjoyed the story, and unlike some of the other reviewers, I found the characters to be be believable. I could relate to Rose. This book was obviously well researched and I really enjoyed reading it and was sorry when it was over. I look forward to her next book.

With each read of a Carol Goodman book, I come away with a more vibrant and positive view. What an eloquent and masterful artist, painting a picture with words so clearly I'm transported! Whether to Italy or upstate New York, I find myself falling between the pages and seeing clear visions of what her words are conveying.

This book is full of twists and turns. It pulls you through centuries of poetic beauty and across several countries. Can we ever go back in time to correct misunderstandings? There are many intriguing ideas that require further contemplation. Excellent writing.
  • Nikojas
As is always the case with Goodman's books the style and flow make for a highly enjoyable read. As is also, often the case, however, the mystery itself is rather weak and the main character starts out extremely intelligent and engaging, but as the end of the book nears, suddenly becomes ridiculously oblivious to the events happening around her.

I have read Carol Goodman's novel with some interest over the past six or so years; mainly, it must be admitted, because I worked with her brother when her first novel came out and I had the chance to meet her then. Still, I don't regret it because I probably wouldn't have read her novels otherwise and, basically, they have been good, if not outstanding. My time with them has not been wasted.

Still, her novels have often given me the feeling of retreading old ground. Her mysteries are intriguing enough but her range sometimes seems limited. Her protagonists are always young women in their 20's or 30's who are writers/artists/teachers. The setting is always New England, usually with some connection to Manhattan. And, in her first four novels, the image of water was ever-present, if unexplained.

When I started this novel, it appeared to be breaking new ground. Yes, the mystery, protagonist and setting were all there but the water had all but disappeared and Shakespeare had appeared. The historical mystery of who was the "Dark Lady" was set to be answered with the appearance of some sonnets by a long-dead woman from the confines of an Italian villa, where much of the novel takes place after its beginnings in Manhattan. As a Bardoloter and reader wanting the best for Ms. Goodman, I had high hopes. Perhaps that's why I was disappointed.

Granted, I was let down somewhat by the fact that, despite initial appearances, she really didn't stray to far from her comfort zone. She doesn't really seem to be able to get in the head of a character who isn't much like herself. But that doesn't necessarily have to be a big problem if the character reacts realistically within the mystery. In the past, that hasn't been a problem with Ms. Goodman's work but here it is. In particular, we have a woman with no real penchant for bravery being within shouting distance of two murders and hiding possible evidence and yet, she repeatedly puts herself in potentially dangerous situations without a thought. And throwaway lines along the lines of, "She didn't know why she was doing this..." don't make believable characterization.

It's too bad because there are many pleasures to be had in this book. Both the mysteries she investigates--Shakespeare's Dark Lady and the murderer on the loose--are handled well. Unfortunately, the plot seems to drive the characters here more than the other way around this time out which makes for a lesser experience than her past books.
Just so so......
