A classy love story with wonderful Italian setting
I’ve read plenty of fiction in my life, everything from junky beach books to classic literature. I loved this book. Gabriel is a clever, funny, profound writer who quickly takes you into the inner world of her characters, while taking you on an external journey that keep you glued to the page. Sara’s character jumps from the pages and her transformation has impacted and inspired me. Big life changes in middle age are rarely easy and this novel treats the challenges intelligently. A classy love story with a wonderful Italian setting. A really satisfying read.
Decent story, with good description and decent dialog, but overall, dealt with a big issue in a somewhat simplistic manner. I found myself wishing for a more in depth delving into the relationships and the secondary characters response to the main story. Light read, more along the lines of a romantic story ( but not a typical romance novel) than a drama.
