Book review: Daughter of Mine by Laura Fabiani


Title:  Daughter of Mine
Author: Laura Fabiani
Publisher: iUniverse
ISBN: 9-780595-478576

Reviewed by Jo Linsdell.

Daughter of Mine tells the tale of Tiziana Manoretti, who finding out that she was adopted, travels to Italy in an attempt to discover the truth about her birth and to search for her birth parents. The road to learning about her past is far from easy but she meets some interesting characters along the way that help her out.
As if the recent bomb about her adoption isn’t enough, Tiziana is also getting mixed signals from her best friend Christopher and starts questioning exactly how deep her feelings for him are.

Daughter of Mine is a real page turner and one of the best books I’ve read for a while. Laura Fabiani captures Italy beautifully as it follows Tiziana on her journey. The descriptions of the locations visited by the characters are wonderful and give a real feel for the setting. As do some of the Italian individuals that Tiziana meets along the way, who made me think of some real Italians I’ve met since I came to live here.

Relationships, love, family, friendship mixed with the stunning scenery of Italy. Daughter of Mine  is excellently written and a very enjoyable read. I highly recommend this book.

Capturing the setting in a novel is essential in "Daughter Of Mine" to dramatize Tiziana's two worlds; Canada and Italy. It is in the diversity of these two worlds where the theme of "Family" acts as a unifying agent. The description of both characters and settings in Italy reminded me vividly of my own trip to an Ionian Island in Greece many years ago. Not surprising given the geographic proximity and shared cultural values of both nations.
