Gemma Jericho is an overworked New York doctor with a handful of a teenaged daughter and a meddlesome mother. So when her mother receives a letter of a mysterious inheritance in Tuscany, Gemma sees her chance. She throws caution to the wind and the three leave for Italy. She hopes that a change of scenery will bring back the closeness she used to share with her daughter and give her mother something to worry about beyond Gemma's social life. What they encounter in Tuscany is a crumbling old villa and a town divided. Half of the residents believe that Ben Raphael, another American, is the rightful inheritor of the villa. As cultures clash, gossip soars, and intrigue unfolds, Gemma is caught up in the most disturbing-and delicious-trouble she's ever had.

Professional reviews

"Celeste Lawson captures the warmth and beauty of the Tuscan countryside and the charm of an Italian village with her narration of Adler's captivating story. Gemma Jericho, New York emergency room physician, has devoted herself to her work, her teenaged daughter and widowed Italian mother, and her vow not to have her heart broken again. When her mother is told that she's inherited a villa in Italy, the family gus to investigate, only to find that another American, an attractive man with a teenaged daughter, claims to have purchased the villa. Gemma's family cannot imagine the effect that this village, where their roots lie, will have on all their lives. Lawson's voice is warm and strong, gracefully voicing the Italian phrases and accents and the extremes of teen conversations. She brings alive the food, the people, and the relationships, making it difficult to stop listening. M.A.M. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
