Napoleon has fallen leaving the Austrian Empire to storm the continent, crushing all revolutionary movements in its path. It is a time of revolts and repression, dashing revolutionaries, traitors, and spies, when fragmented Italy was swept into one of the most turbulent periods in European History.

Angelo Bartolini is a noble and stalwart Italian patriot and member of the Carbonari, a secret society revolting against the Austrian Empire's ruthless repression of Italy. But Angelo is also the catalyst that brings about the awakening of a shy, English woman, Beatrice Fairweather, a brilliant painter, burdened by the restraints and attitudes women artists faced during the early nineteenth century.

The story of two people who fall in love at the wrong time, THE ITALIAN is a haunting tale of families and war, of missed opportunities, betrayal, tragedy, and a love that knows no end.
