BookFest 2024 Award - Rome's Last Noble Palace


I had so much fun writing this dual timeline novel (1890s and present day), set in Rome. It was the first time I included a ghostly element in one of my novels… but I hope it won’t be my last.

Here below is a short overview of the story. Hope you’ll consider reading this (award winning) Roman novel!

Two women. Two different centuries. One attic room

Isabelle has been shipped off from America to Rome to live with her aunt, Princess Brancaccio, and be married off to a European nobleman. But Rome in 1896 is on the cusp of a new century and Isabelle longs for more than a titled husband. Over a century later, Sophie can’t believe her good fortune interning in a Roman museum, complete with an attic apartment in the spectacular Palazzo Brancaccio. The idyll is shattered by a disturbing nighttime presence in the deserted hallways of the grand palace – one no one else can sense.
