We have the second for the October Boxwalla Book box:

In October, we showcase the great Italian writer Dacia Maraini, with her book : The Silent Duchess.
 
The Silent Duchess is set in 18th Century Sicily and follows the story of Marianna Ucria, a strong, silent heroine with an indomitable spirit. The story starts with seven year old Marianna, the daughter of a Sicilian Duke, and follows her through childhood, marriage, motherhood and beyond. Filled with extraordinary sensory detail: the sights, the smells of Sicily, this luminous novel is a must read.
 
The October selections include two books and a delightful bookish gift.
If you missed the first spoiler:

This October we read our way to Turkey and Italy!

The first selection is Turkish novelist Sabahatin Ali’s  Madonna in a Fur Coat. This gorgeous Turkish novel, a love story set in 1920s Berlin, compared both to Turgenev’s First Love and Fitzgerald’s Great Gatsby, is one of the top rated books on good reads – 21,935 votes and a 4.5 star rating. YET, it is unknown in the English speaking world. The English translation will be released in the U.S in November (75 years after it was first published), but our book subscribers will get their hands on this heartbreakingly beautiful novel ahead of the release, in October.

Fun Fact : Marion Cottilard is slated to play the female lead in the film version of this book.

October’s selections will include two books and a bookish gift.
