A Starred Review for Little Fortress
"Rosnau has done a masterful job of using the lives of historical figures as the building blocks of a stunning work of fiction."
Little Fortress is based on the true story of the Caetanis, Italian nobility driven out of their home by the rise in fascism who chose exile in Vernon, BC. Rosnau brings to life Ofelia Caetani, her daughter Sveva Caetani and their personal secretary, Miss Jüül, a diminutive Danish woman who is the voice of the novel. It is a story of a shifting world, with the death of its age-old nobility, and of the intricacies of the lives of women caught up in these grand changes. It is a story of friendship, class, betrayal and love.
