    I was kind of disappointed in this book Not that it is a bad book, by any means But the line I was expecting, and that I was reading the book to try to understand, just was not there.In the preface to the book, the author indicates that there are actually two widely differing versions of the book In the first published version, he says, a lot of political and religious commentary overlay the love story that was the foundation of the book But the version we are dealing with here was requested I was kind of disappointed in this book Not that it is a bad book, by any means But the line I was expecting, and that I was reading the book to try to understand, just was not there.In the preface to the book, the author indicates that there are actually two widely differing versions of the book In the first published version, he says, a lot of political and religious commentary overlay the love story that was the foundation of the book But the version we are dealing with here was requested to accompany the play that was made from the core story In it, much of the politics and religion has been cut away That, I suspect, is what has happened to the line I was looking for.Anyway, the author points out that the story is primarily about a woman who betrays her husband to save his life The way I see it, it slike she was coerced and frightened into betraying him.Roma is an orphan and the ward of a certain Baron Bonelli who is, or is about to become, Prime Minister of Italy David Rossi is a member of parliament who is a populist, being in favor of the fair treatment of people The Baron can t stand him, and sets out to ruin him.It happens that he has spoken out against Roma, though not by name, as someone who has an inordinate amount of influence in the government, and she takes offense at that and vows to bring him down The baron is pleased to let her do just that.But she doesn t realize that David Rossi is her long lost almost brother As she brings him into her circle to ruin him, they each discover who the other is, and renew and expand their old love Roma is sorry she ever set out to ruin him Eventually, she gets David to marry her so she can t be forced to testify against him, because, apparently, he is already under sentence of death for working with her father earlier But the baron seems to have unlimited ways to pressure Roma into doing what he wants in spite of all her resolve.A lot of bad happens because of the baron s manipulations, but in the end, even he doesn t get everything his own way after all

    This book may be a little hard to come by in Singapore Back then, the only publicly available copy was the one in the NUS main library It starts out a little slowly, but eventually builds to a timeless tour de force.

  7. Snufkin Snufkin says:

    A truly beautiful novel, with many tissues needed towards the end A wonderful tale of the fight for justice in society, and the happiness of the people, against all the odds.
