With his trademark warmth, humor, and wisdom, Peter
Pezzelli's newest novel weaves an unforgettable tale of
Italian-American life and family, hope and heartbreak,
lessons learned and lessons deferred, and a love that can
heal time's greatest wounds...
out of college, Carter Quinn has returned to his home in
North Providence, Rhode Island, unsure of just about
everything except his plans to go to Italy and pursue the
woman of his dreams. To do that, he needs to learn to speak
Italian, and only one man is right for the job--Giancarlo
Rosa...if Carter can survive him.
Giancarlo is nobody's
fool. The middle-aged music professor does offer Italian
lessons, but only to those who are truly motivated. If
Carter wants to learn, he will have to prove himself:
lessons three times a week, hours of studying, strict
discipline. And there will be no questions about the
professor's life--why he hasn't written music in years, why
he lives alone, and why he left his homeland in the first
place. Carter may see Italy as a land of romance, but
Giancarlo knows just what disappointments and betrayals live
under the Abruzzo sky. What begins as an apparent mismatch
between mentor and student soon blossoms into something
deeper--a friendship that carries them into the old country,
where forgotten secrets may hold the key to a new lease on
Now, in a land of sun, wine, new romance and old
wounds, two men will embark on separate, unpredictable
journeys that will take them deep into the untraveled places
of the heart where everything must be learned...
