ABOUT THIS BOOK
Three women. One family curse. The summer of a lifetime.
For generations, no second-born daughter in the Fontana family has married. Lucy desperately wants to find love, but for her cousin Emilia, their family curse is a blessing in disguise.
But then their Great Aunt Poppy declares she’ll reunite with her long-lost love on her eightieth birthday – and break the curse once and for all.
And so the three women embark on a journey to Tuscany to fulfil Poppy’s last wish. But the secrets they uncover there could change their family forever…
ONE ITALIAN SUMMER by Lori Nelson Spielman is a beautiful and emotional journey about love and finding yourself and I enjoyed it immensely.
There is a curse on the Fontana family where the second-born daughter has been destined to live a single life without love and marriage. For one Fontana this is seen as a blessing in disguise while another mourns for what she cannot have. So when their Great-Aunt Poppy announces that they must take a trip together so that she can finally break the curse, it receives mixed feelings. How will they ever find Poppy's long-lost love from so long ago? And can the curse truly be broken?
With stunning settings and characters that get under your skin and feel like family, ONE ITALIAN SUMMER is the perfect escapist read. Poppy was my favourite character and I loved her quirky nature throughout. During this epic adventure trip to Tuscany, we get to learn about Poppy's life and learn more about all three of these special women and there were definitely moments where I felt sadness as well as hope for what they were embarking on. And like life, things never go as smoothly as we hope it will.
ONE ITALIAN SUMMER by Lori Nelson Spielman is about friendship and true understanding and I highly recommend it to fiction fans everywhere. This was my first time reading this author's work but it won't be my last.
