Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The beauty and rich culture of Tuscany form a wonderfully romantic and compelling backdrop for this delightful novel. Ms. Adler’s characters are complex and riveting, making this another must-read novel.” Romantic Times
“Celeste Lawson captures the warmth and beauty of the Tuscan countryside and the charm of an Italian village with her narration of Adler’s captivating story…She brings alive the food, the people, and the relationships, making it difficult to stop listening.” AudioFile
“Adler, author of The Last Time I Saw Paris...reveals a deft hand in creating characters to cheer for and settings to dream over in this deeply appealing story of love, family, and the beauty of Italy.” Booklist
“The audio version of Adler’s dramatic tale breathes new life into the sumptuous backdrop and colorful cast of characters. Narrator Lawson is equally convincing whether she’s channeling a cynical Manhattan teenager or a middle-aged Italian innkeeper—and this is no small feat given Adler’s dialogue-heavy, regionally accented prose...This audio book will provide a delightful escape from the real world.” Publishers Weekly (audio review)
