The historic novel “ A House Near Luccoli “ by Diane M Denton invites us to be witness of the last days in the life of the composer Alessandro Stradella, who really lived in the 17th century. Diane vividly describes how the fictive Donatella plays an important part in those last moments. The story, romantic and entertaining, historical and interesting, is not only a fantastic way to learn more about Stradella, or Italy in the 17th century, but also a great novel, making you want to know what happens next to Donatella. Diane also did the image of the cover herself, she is a very gifted painter also! I kindly recommend her book:

  2. Thank you so much, Ina. I can’t say enough how much I appreciate that you read the novel and are so generous in your comments!

    I am so behind on your posts – I hope you will forgive me! Well, you can ‘blame’ Donatella as she has been keeping me otherwise occupied!

    Blessings, love and hugs, Diane XO

  3. I too can recommend Diane’s book, and her poetry and her art (and her mom’s as well) 🙂
