For his newest novel, prolific author Chris Bohjalian (The Sandcastle Girls, Midwives) throws together a garden variety of story elements including a war-ravaged Tuscan countryside circa 1943, a beautiful woman with a haunted past, a noble Italian family and a serial killer for good measure. Toss lightly with a balsamic dressing and you’ve got his new novel, The Light in the Ruins.
