Lose yourself in Italian blue skies and sun-kissed streets with this gorgeous, heart-wrenching story about love and second chances. Fans of That Month in Tuscany, T.A. Williams and Lucy Coleman will fall head over heels for Mia and Luca’s incredible romance.
Mia Moretti is looking for a place to heal. A devastating illness has taken her talent for painting, and her dreams of being an artist have been broken. Clutching a one-way ticket to Florence, Mia hopes that in Tuscany’s rich green vineyards she can find herself again.
It doesn’t take long for Mia to fall in love with the crumbling walls and endless views of Villa Belladonna. But what Mia doesn't count on is handsome local Luca Bonnici. With his charming smile and easy laugh, he intrigues Mia, and his confidence reminds her of the person she used to be. As she jumps on the back of his motorcycle and spends long days gazing into his smouldering chestnut eyes, she begins to feel free.
But just as Mia starts to wonder if she could stay in Florence, or hold a paintbrush again, tragedy strikes, and she realises that she may not really know Luca at all. Will the secrets between them bring them together, or force Mia, heartbroken, to return home for good?
