Midnight at the Tuscany Hotel by James Markert

A once-beloved hotel and a fountain whose water suddenly can restore lost memories. But is it a miracle,
 or are there strings attached?
The Tuscany Hotel was once a haven for young artists. A place full of inspiration and a work of art in and of itself, 
the hotel was built by Robert Gandy for his wife, Magdalena: a woman of beauty beyond description who was orphaned 
as an infant in Florence and grew up without the ability to remember. A tragedy caused the hotel to close its doors, however, 
and it has been years since the fountain in the courtyard ran with water and inspiration.
Vitto Gandy, Robert’s son, returns from the horrors of World War II to a wife who fears him, a son who is too young 
to remember him, and a father whose memory of him is fading. As Vitto faces the memories that torture his heart and mind, 
his father runs off in the night to seek solace in the last place he was happy: the Tuscany Hotel. Instead of finding ruins, 
he discovers that the water in the fountain has begun to run again. And as he drinks it, his memory returns.
Filled with Alzheimer’s patients hoping for restored memories rather than artists longing for inspiration, t
he hotel is once again a source of life and art. But nothing is truly as good as it seems, and the mysterious 
gift of the hotel comes with a price that each must determine they’re willing to pay. Bursting with beauty, art, 
and inspiration, Midnight at the Tuscany Hotel is a story of parent and child, husband and wife, and the joy and pain of 
what it means to be alive.

Here is what I thought.......
I have enjoyed reading this book. The writing is done well. It is a very emotional book.
My only negative comment would be the bad language in the book. I don't usually read books with bad 
language so I always note if it's there in my reviews. A very thought provoking read. I received this book from 
the publisher for free. All opinions are my own. A positive review was not required.
