Synopsis

Who is Aurora? Every time she becomes a new Mrs (three times when last we counted) she becomes a new woman: art collector with the first; hippy with the second; deli owner with the last. Sad that they all died. Widowed three times...When Aurora decides to take herself off to Italy to visit her old friend, Nun Leonora, after her last husband's demise, she finds herself plunged into intrigues at the convent; and very odd goings on at the art gallery. Combined with her own dangerous lust for sex and food, this could well be the scenario that reveals the real Aurora - even to herself.

Roberts exhibits a jaunty sense of the absurd in her winking 12th novel, which follows the capers of Aurora, a suspiciously thrice-widowed Brit who takes a holiday in Padenza, Italy, following the death of her third husband.
