Publisher's Summary

When Sofia Bianchi’s father, Aldo, dies, it makes her stop and look at things afresh. Having been his carer for so many years, she knows it’s time for her to live her own life - and to fulfil some promises she made to Aldo in his final days.

So there’s nothing for it but to escape to Italy’s Umbrian mountains, where, tucked away in a sleepy Italian village, lie plenty of family secrets waiting to be discovered. There, Sofia also finds Amy, who is desperately trying to find her way in life after discovering her dad isn’t her biological father.

Sofia sets about helping Amy through this difficult time, but it’s the handsome Levi who proves to be the biggest distraction for Sofia as her new life starts to take off....

Dreaming of Italy

This was my first Sue Moorcroft book and I will definitely be reading/listening to more of her books.
I loved the story, The characters are great and I am a fan of Levi and his family in particular. Amy was more like a 13 year old than a 18 year old and I wanted to shake her at times and tell her to behave herself! Helen Johns is a great narrator and her accents lovely to listen to.

Not Sue Moorcoffs best

Narrators voices irritating and almost wobbly. Very disappointed with story line.

Hope the next one is better.

Loved it. An easy listen.<br /><br /><br />

Easy listening with a thoroughly modern storyline. A writer new to me but one I would listen to again.
