Alice Ferro is back with your favourite book boyfriend, Claudio Moro.

Alice of the Rocks, by E. Graziani, follows the story of Alice, who was born in 1512 Florence, but raised in 2029 Canada. In a unique turn of events, she travels back in time to save her past-life lover, Claudio, from the powerful Medici family.

The sequel has her returning to 1512 Florence when she discovers Claudio’s unfortunate future.

Written with charm and intelligence, this YA time travel romance encompasses everything you could want in a sequel. Adventure, true love, intrigue, and dynamic characters fill the pages alongside the elegant landscape of Renaissance Italy.

The only thing missing from this exceptional book is a title.
