March 2014 Book of the Month.
A hit-and-run accident knocking Floriana off her bicycle introduces her to two saviours, one old lady Esme, one young man Adam. These are our three main characters in a charming tale of reflection, past trauma and regrets as the newfound friends find comfort in each other. A trip to Italy digging up the past climaxes the plot in a lovely warm read with great descriptions of the lakes and some well portrayed characters. It is a lovely read.
It was a wedding invitation that changed everything for Floriana...If she hadn't been so distracted at the thought of having to witness the one true love of her life get married, she would have seen the car coming. If she'd seen the car coming, there would have been no need for elderly spinster Esme Silcox and local property developer Adam Strong to rush to her aid. And if Floriana hadn't met Adam and Esme she would never have had the courage to agree to attend Seb's wedding in beautiful Lake Como. For Esme, Lake Como awakens memories of when she stayed at the lake as a nineteen-year-old girl and fell in love for the first time. So often she's wondered what happened to the man who stole her heart all those years ago, a man who changed the course of her life. Now it's time for both Esme and Floriana to face the past - and the future - on the shores of this most romantic and enchanting of lakes.
