Winner of the Book Excellence Award 2016 for Romance.

An emotional historical romance set in Sardinia in the 1800’s. Two families, united over the years and truly at one with the Sardinian landscape and traditions, find themselves in the midst of a battle for survival. Raffaella and Antonio have loved each other since they were children, as they declare their love, members of Raffaella’s family have their eyes turned to a different suitor for her. With fascinating historical details flowing through the story, I really felt as though I was getting to know and understand the problems Sardina faced during this period. You can feel the love that Lexa Dudley has for this island, her descriptions of the countryside set you in the midst of this time and place. ‘Children of the Mists’ travels through some turbulent times, and is a lovely very readable tale. ~ Liz Robinson

Children of the Mists Synopsis

A striking historic rendition of life on the island of Sardinia...Children of the Mists is a story of enduring love. Set in the 1800s, life on Sardinia had barely changed since the time of the Caesars. Two families, the Sannas and the Canus, are united by friendship and honour; love and laughter; joy and promises; omens and superstitions; youth and experience transcend generations. However, for Raffaella and Antonio, their passionate love becomes entangled with revenge. Death changes devotion. Promises are forgotten. Vendettas cannot be ignored. Ambition clouds judgments. Antonio and Raffaella were promised to each other, nothing would keep them apart, not even family. Committed to each other, they fight for their love against all odds...Children of the Mists is a gripping journey back in time that will make the perfect addition to any romance lover's collection.
