Giveaway: The Doctor and the Diva

Summary: It is 1903, and Erika von Kessler has struggled for years to become pregnant. Resigned to childlessness, Erika-a talented opera singer and the wife of a prominent Bostonian-secretly plans to move to Italy to pursue her musical career. When the charismatic Doctor Ravell takes Erika on as a patient, he is mesmerized by her. Impetuously, he takes a shocking risk that could ruin them both. 

Inspired by the author's family history, the novel moves from snowy Boston to the gilded balconies of Florence in a stunning tale of opera, longing, and the indomitable power of romantic obsession. -- Penguin

Last year, I reviewed THE DOCTOR AND THE DIVA by Adrienne McDonnell and enjoyed it a great deal. THE DOCTOR AND THE DIVA is a well written novel which is rich in historical details. It also has a unique cast of characters which definitely piqued my interest. In fact, THE DOCTOR AND THE DIVA would make an excellent book club pick because the characters and their actions are sure to generate a lot of strong feelings. (Check out the reading guide here.)
