Publisher's Summary

The story of four American strangers who bond in Italy and change their lives over the course of an exceptional year. 

She watches from her terrazza as the three American women carry their luggage into the stone villa down the hill. Who are they, and what brings them to this Tuscan village so far from home? An expat herself, and with her own unfinished story, she can't help but question: will they find what they came for?

Kit Raine, an American writer living in the small Italian town of San Rocco, is working on a biography of her close friend, the novelist Margaret Merrill. But her work is waylaid by the arrival of three women - Julia, Camille and Susan - all of whom have recently formed a friendship that will uproot them completely and redirect their lives. For Susan, the most fearless of the three, has enticed them to subvert expectations of a staid retirement in the States by taking on the lease of a big, beautiful house in Tuscany.... 

Though novices in a foreign culture, their renewed sense of adventure imbues each of them with a bright sense of bravery, a spirited lust for life and a fierce determination to thrive. With Kit’s friendship and guidance, the three friends launch themselves into Italian life, pursuing passions long-forgotten - with drastic and unforeseeable results.

Renew Explore Experience

This is a wonderful story, or really stories, of women restarting their lives. I felt like I was in Italy. Kimberley played the characters so well that I could see them. And Frances Mayes writing allows you to share the characters experiences as they explore their renewed lives. Fabulous!

Absorbing

I was drawn into these women's lives and wished the story would never end. I wanted to fly to Tuscany and live the life they have. The narration was great and I loved the Southern accents.

I highly recommend this book to any woman who dreams of an alternative existence. Thank you Frances Mayes for taking me to Tuscany.
