Madame Solario
GLADYS HUNTINGTON
A novel in the Edith Wharton tradition first published anonymously in 1956, which caused a succès de scandale and pushed it into first place on the best- seller lists. It is set in 1906 in a hotel at Cadenabbia on Lake Como: the beautiful Natalia Solario cannot escape the impropriety in her past and her relation- ship with her brother is far too close to avoid scandalous rumours. Superbly written, sensuous and haunting, Madame Solario has been translated into seven languages and was filmed in 2012.
