KIRKUS REVIEW

Eighteen' and romantic in Italy, Rachel is spending the summer with her archaelogist father, dating two men, learning to appreciate two difficult women, girl-talking her friend Lisa and...dressing and undressing in unsophisticated out-of-date clothes with a bouncing, fresh pony tail to match. The mystery is intricate, aesthetic, sentimental--an old folk song about, a beautiful Etruscan carving leads, to an ancient cave, with the long-sought (and still-sought) key to the language and the happy ending to a pre-war love story. Rachel matures, rejecting her flashier suitors for the stable, dedicated archaeologist, Josh, and discovering that she wants to share his career. If 'the frumpy fashion show doesn't put the reader off, she'll probably stomach the routine romant-aches and swallow the good stolid values.
