One Summer in Venice Synopsis

'This isn't a mid-life crisis OK? For a start I'm not old enough yet to have one of those. I'm calling it a happiness project. I've stolen an entire summer from my life and by the time it's over I plan to leave this place with a list in my hand. The ten things that make me happy, that's all I want to know. How difficult can it be? They may be small things - a perfect cup of coffee, a day without rain - or bigger ones. It's still the beginning so how can I know?' Addolorata Martinelli knows she should be happy. She has everything she thought she wanted - her own business, a husband, a child. So why does she feel as if something is missing? Then when her restaurant, Little Italy, is slated by a reviewer, she realises that she's lost the one thing she thought she could always count on, her love of food. So Addolorata heads to Venice for a summer alone, aiming to find the ten things that make her happy.

The Good Book Guide Review

For Addolorata, ‘Dolly’ Martinelli the city of Venice plays a pivotal role in a journey of self-discovery. On paper, Dolly seems to have everything she dreamed of with family and an established business, but in reality her life has become prosaic and uninspiring, so she decides to try and find redemption amongst the streets and canals of La Serenissima. Arriving as an outsider but soon feeling properly integrated into Venetian life after being befriended by the mysterious Coco, Dolly compiles a list of ten things that will help her to rediscover her true self, and sets about realising her dreams during her glorious summer of independence. Infused with a palpable love of Italy that comes from the author’s own heritage, this intelligent tale of one woman’s personal quest for happiness is pertinent for many and provides ideal summer fare, laced with an uplifting dose of sunny Italian charm.

When Nicky met and married a New Zealander she moved to Auckland where she works as a journalist and edits a woman's ...
