Set against an exquisitely rendered Italian countryside, The Light in the Ruins unveils a breathtaking story of moral paradox, human frailty, and the mysterious ways of the heart. Alternating time and viewpoints, a murder mystery spanning generations in the Rosati family doubles as an exploration of post-WWII Italy. Chris Bohjalian is the critically acclaimed author of sixteen novels, including the New York Times bestsellers Midwives and The Sandcastle Girls.
Chris Bohjalian's new novel, The Light in the Ruins, arrives on July 9.
"Mastering matters subtle and grotesque, Bohjalian combines intricate
plotting and bewitching sensuality with historical insight and a
profound sense of place to create an exceptional work of suspense rooted
in the tragic aberrations of war." -- Donna Seaman, Booklist -- starred review
