Anna’s recently been told the father she’s never met is Italian. Now she’s baking focaccia, whipping up tiramisu and swotting up on her vocabulary, determined to make it to Italy so she can find him in person.
Catherine’s husband has walked out on her, and she’s trying to pick up the pieces of her life. But she’ll need courage as well as friends when she discovers his deception runs even deeper than infidelity.
Sophie is the teacher of the class, who’d much rather be back in sunny Sorrento. She can’t wait to escape the tensions at home and go travelling again. But sometimes life – and love – can surprise you when you least expect it.
As the evening class gets under way, friendships form and secrets from Italy begin to emerge. With love affairs blossoming in the most unlikely places, and hard decisions to face, it’s going to be a year that Anna, Catherine and Sophie will never forget.
I love Lucy Diamonds books so much. They are like a breath of fresh air. This book in particular was fantastic. It tells a story about three very different women who are discovering themselves and how they all connect. There are some serious issues in this book that Lucy addresses well but there is also some very funny one liners that had me chuckling. Even though I’ve never been to Italy before this book made me want to go, I absolutely loved each paragraph having been titled an Italian word and the Italian phrases at the back of the book was great. I also love any book that has a couple of recipes at the back. ciao. 🙂
