When Eliana moved to Italy with her new husband, the future was bright with promise. Tuscany held magic in it's sprawling vineyards, great food, and centuries of art. Her family and friends all thought she had made the right choice in following her heart and the man she fell in love with and married, by moving back to his native country. In America, Eliana's story was that of a fairy tale.
But in Italy, Eliana finds her husband to be a different man, leaving her alone to care for their young son, struggling with the asthma that threatens to take his life.
And then along comes a fellow American, a deeply thoughtful man with a mysterious passion for art........

Awesome book. No sexual content, but not spiritual either. Yet, it is great how he shows emotion and tension.

A love story with a underlying commentary on family and culture and how much we'll sacrifice for both. It was an interesting book but I found myself just continually wondering, "Do they end up together?"

This was a rare read for me since there's no time for novels.

This book is a Italian travel guide, Cliff notes on Italian, and an unbelievable love story. It's emotional highs and lows affected me physically! Extremely well written and read. Since I didn't read the jacket, it was more emotional because I didn't know about the ending; happy or sad. 5 star in the opinion of this PG guy.

This was a beautiful, touching love story, which I thoroughly enjoyed. The characters were realistic, and the writer has a great writing style. I would definitely recommend this book.

It is a story of a young American woman who marries an Italian man, moves to Italy, has his child and lives a very lonely life in a loveless marriage. She meets an American man and they become fast friends and soon fall in love.

The story is wonderful and you will find when you finish the book you wish it was not over and it would continue forever.

A wonderful love story.......

"Those who enjoyed THE CHRISTMAS BOX are in for another treat." Publishers Weekly
"An Italian came to America and stole her heart--But it took a fellow American in Italy to show her true love." (inside cover)

This story was just wonderful. It was one that tightens the chest (if you have read a novel that is so moving you understand what I mean). I loved the ending and the middle and the beginning.

I enjoyed this book sooooo much, that I kept it a long time before deciding to part with it. Someone else should have a chance to enjoy it.

The author does an excellent job of spinning a tale of passion, love, joy and sorrow. Often I had a lump in my throat. If you like a romance, this is for you.
