Back home with Annalena!
Whilst I might not be able to be in Florence at this time, at least my book can be. Thank you to Andrea, the manager of the historic Hotel Annalena in Via Romana, who enjoyed reading my book and kindly took these photos of it in the reception. My book feels truly at home in this place; after all it was here that I was first inspired to write it. The hotel stands upon part of the the site that was once occupied by the convent that Annalena Malatesta founded in the fifteenth century. I can't wait until I can return to Florence, but until then I rest content knowing that my book is in its rightful place. I am certain too that Annalena would also be very happy.
