Tour of Italy Teaser Tuesday: The Daughter of Siena

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share two "teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! Share the title & author, too, so that others can add the book to their TBR Lists!

This week my teaser comes from The Daughter of Siena by Marina Fiorato: "Amid the intrigue and danger of 18th-century Italy, a young woman becomes embroiled in romance and treachery with a rider in the Palio, the breathtaking horse race set in Siena." I'll be posting my 4.5-Star review of this book on Thursday, so come back and check it out! From page 193:

The Daughter of Siena: A Novel     "Signor Bruni instructs me to tell you that your husband has gone into the Maremma to train. The servants tell me he will be there for a fortnight at least."
     He smiled at her, the second, lovely, uncomplicated smile she had received today.
     "He thought you would like to know."
