Dear Librarians,

In 1910, Genoa, Italy, the Berillis are wealthy and powerful—until the day their darkest secrets begin to surface. Then their demise is unavoidable. Love, however, lives on through the music of a mandolin player who is not giving up on the girl of his dreams. As the Berillis fall, The House of Serenades denounces the abuse and repression of women that was so common within the upper class of those years. History, saga, love story, music: a must have for your library!
