Summary- Most American teenagers want a vacation in Italy, but the Bentarrini sisters have spent every smmer of their lives with their parents, famed Etuscan scholars, among the romantic hills. Stuck among the rubble of medieval castles in rural Tuscany on yet another hot, dusty archeological site, Gabi and Lia are bored out of their minds...until Gabi places her hand atop a handprint in an ancient tomb and finds herself in sixteenth-century Italy. And worse yet, in the middle of a fierce battle between knights and two opposing forces.
And thus does she come to be rescued by the knight-prince Marcello Falassi, who takes her back to his father's castle- a castle Gabi has seen in ruins in another life. Suddenly Gabi's summer in Italy is much, much more interesting.
Review- Pretty much amazing book. It is so cool to learn things about past times, while reading such a great book. I really did not want it to end, and am so excited to find out what happens next in the two next books! The love story is not cliche, which I love. It is great to show how brave and tough girls really can be in any given situation! Oh, and the cover is gorgeous!
