I loved the descriptions of life along the Amalfi Coast. I'm ready to sell my house and move there :-)
A very good book about a 37 year woman who must confront her past and deal with the two men who left her by dying, in order to enjoy her future--a new love.
I loved this book!! It gave such a wonderful description of Italy that you felt like you were there. It also had a good mixture of romance and mystery. Its a great read!
Elizabeth Adler's novel tells of Lamour Harrington's life as a landscape architect in Chicago. (As a child in Italy, she learned much from Mifune, a Japanese employee and landscape architect of the Pirati mansion on the Amalfi coast.) Lamour's husband dies; she searches her soul to find the answer of how her father died in Italy years ago.
Lamour returns to Italy, and is torn between two mysterious & compelling men. Lamour discovers that the past has a way of returning when you least expect it. She finds Mifune, again, but as an older man. He tells her to be careful as she searches answers to her past.
The House in Amalfi is a great read that will keep you turning pages; a book that will keep you reading to the end quickly. You won't want to put the book down.
Very disappointing! This is my second Adler book, having read the excellent "Fortune is a Woman," and I couldn't believe I was reading the same author.
