Under a Dancing Star by Laura Wood

Set in the 1930's, Bea has never lived up to her parents' expectations of a refined young lady. Instead, she is interested in learning and science and definitely not the arranged marriage her parents have planned for her in order to save their estate. For the summer, she gets sent to her uncle's house in Italy and begins to discover who she really is outside of anyone else's expectations.
