The Violet Shawl
Doris Dix Caruso, author
An innkeeper in one of the loveliest small towns in Italy told me a story one evening of an American honeymoon couple and of how the artist bride was stolen from her professor groom during their month long stay. I asked what occurred then and she said she did not know! What could I do but write this story to complete this fateful couples journey and to finally release it from my tortured brain. The Violet Shawl plays an important part in this love/mystery story that takes place in Florence, Italy and in Durham, North Carolina.
