Personal Experiences

My librarian suggested this book to me, and said that this is a new a book and I think you’ll love it. She didn’t give me a summary or a reason of why I should read it, but I read it any way. And I understand now that the less you know about the book, the better it will be for you. I put the summary below if you want to read it, but trust me, read it. Mystery, Romance, Adventure, and Wonder, this book will take you places.

“I made the wrong choice.”

Lina is spending the summer in Tuscany, but she isn’t in the mood for Italy’s famous sunshine and fairy-tale landscape. She’s only there because it was her mother’s dying wish that she get to know her father. But what kind of father isn’t around for sixteen years? All Lina wants to do is get back home.

But then she is given a journal that her mom had kept when she lived in Italy. Suddenly Lina’s uncovering a magical world of secret romances, art, and hidden bakeries. A world that inspires Lina, along with the ever-so-charming Ren, to follow in her mother’s footsteps and unearth a secret that has been kept for far too long. It’s a secret that will change everything she knew about her mother, her father—and even herself.

People come to Italy for love and gelato, someone tells her, but sometimes they discover much more.

“You may be slow to warm up, but once you do, you light up the whole room”

“What I really want is someone who will wake me up early so I don’t miss a sunrise.”

“Turns out there’s a reason they call it falling in love, because when it happens – really happens – that’s exactly how it feels. There’s no doing or trying, you just let go and hope that someone’s going to be there to catch you.”

“A life without love is like a year without summer.”

“[She was] like an exclamation mark in human form.”

“So… Italian gelato. Take the deliciousness of a regular ice-cream cone, times it by a million, then sprinkle it with crushed-up unicorn horns.”
