A young man and his Italian teacher form an unlikely friendship in this novel of hope, heartbreak and the Italian-American experience. Fresh 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 there's only one man who can teach him—if Carter can survive him. Giancarlo Rosa is nobody's fool. The middle-aged music professor does offer Italian lessons, but only to those who are truly dedicated. Carter will have to prove himself with strict discipline, hours of study, and respect for his teacher's privacy. Giancarlo doesn't care to be asked about his personal life—why he hasn't written music in years, why he lives alone, and why he left his homeland in the first place. While Carter sees Italy as a land of romance, Giancarlo knows what disappointments live under the Abruzzo sky. But soon the mentor and student develop a friendship that brings them to the old country together. In the land of sun, wine, new romance, and old wounds, each man embarks on his own journey of the heart
