When Gillian Chappell and Owen Moore meet by chance in Verona, Italy, their relationship seems as doomed as that of the city’s most famous tragic lovers, Romeo and Juliet. Little do Gillian and Owen know that the ghosts of Romeo and Juliet are guiding them, hoping to steer them to the happy ending Romeo and Juliet had dreamed of for themselves.
But like Shakespeare’s hero and heroine, Gillian and Owen are star-crossed, forced to deal with historic feuds, meddlesome friends and relatives, and their own irrational longing for each other. From Verona, Italy to Verona, New Jersey, Owen fights for everything Gillian’s family has always fought against, and Gillian tries to defend her beloved father while her heart cries out for Owen’s love. Romeo and Juliet may have brought them together, but the stars alone will determine their fate.
