I received a copy of this book from Avon Books UK via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
An engaging romantic story that spans familial generations from post-war Italy to North America.The Fontana family curse still prevails. Aunt Poppy is determined to end it with the help of her great-nieces Emilia and Lucy on a life-changing trip to Italy.
The story reveals family secrets told from Emilia’s and Poppy’s points of view. The family dynamics and individual characters are authentic and relatable. The settings are vivid and bring the story to life.
This is a charming, poignant romantic story. Full of humour, misunderstandings and self-sacrifice.
