Read full description of the books La Vergine azzurra:

Nella seconda metà del Cinquecento, Monsieur Marcel, un predicatore calvinista, incendia con i suoi sermoni gli animi degli abitanti del villaggio in cui vive Isabelle la Rossa, una ragazza chiamata così per la sua somiglianza con un’altra Rossa, la Madonna che, in un’edicola di un azzurro vivido, troneggia sul portone della chiesa
del paese. Per liberarsi di quel soprannome diventato una maledizione
da quando il predicatore ha persuaso il paese a mondare dal peccato la chiesa e a liberarla dagli idoli, Isabelle compie un gesto estremo: distrugge con un rastrello la statuetta.
Così si annuncia la fine della fanciullezza di Isabelle la Rossa e l’inizio del suo destino di donna. Un destino che starebbe nascosto per sempre se, secoli dopo, non arrivasse nel sud della Francia Ella Turner,
un’americana perseguitata da uno strano sogno in cui le appare una veste azzurra. Per risolvere il mistero Ella si ritrova tra le Cévennes, le isolate montagne dove ebbero origine i Tournier-Turner.

Un vero trionfo!».

di personaggi perfettamente descritti».
New York Times

al romanzo storico».

Read information about the author

Ebook La Vergine azzurra read Online! Born:
19 October 1962 in Washington, DC. Youngest of 3 children. Father was a photographer for The Washington Post.

Childhood:
Nerdy. Spent a lot of time lying on my bed reading. Favorite authors back then: Laura Ingalls Wilder, Madeleine L’Engle, Zilpha Keatley Snyder, Joan Aiken, Susan Cooper, Lloyd Alexander. Book I would have taken to a desert island: Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery.

Education:
BA in English, Oberlin College, Ohio, 1984. No one was surprised that I went there; I was made for such a progressive, liberal place.

MA in creative writing, University of East Anglia, Norwich, England, 1994. There’s a lot of debate about whether or not you can be taught to write. Why doesn’t anyone ask that of professional singers, painters, dancers? That year forced me to write all the time and take it seriously.

Geography:
Moved to London after graduating from Oberlin in 1984. I had studied for a semester in London and thought it was a great place, so came over for fun, expecting to go back to the US after 6 months to get serious. I’m still in London, and still not entirely serious. Even have dual citizenship – though I keep the American accent intact.

Family:
1 English husband + 1 English son + 1 tortoiseshell cat.

Career:
Before writing, was a reference book editor, working on encyclopedias about writers. (Yup, still nerdy.) Learned how to research and how to make sentences better. Eventually I wanted to fix my own sentences rather than others’, so I quit and did the MA.

Writing:
Talked a lot about becoming a writer as a kid, but actual pen to paper contact was minimal. Started writing short stories in my 20s, then began first novel, The Virgin Blue, during the MA year. With Girl With a Pearl Earring (written in 1998), I became a full-time writer, and have since juggled it with motherhood
