One Italian Summer

Katy’s entire life has fallen apart. She has no taste for food, she cannot sleep and no longer knows if she is meant to be married to Eric. The illness and passing of her beloved mother has left her completely empty, devoid of any feelings except utter sadness. On a whim she decides to take the trip they had always dreamed of going on together - to retrace her mother’s memorable summer in Positano, Italy. When she arrives, itinerary in hand, she is immediately swept away with sunshine and memories that are not hers but those her mother described in breathtaking detail over the years. One day there is a woman at the front desk mailing a package and against everything Katy ever believed or understood, by some magical twist of fate, it is her mother Carol. Only she is 30 years old, not 60 and she is healthy and beautiful. Shocked but grateful the two become fast friends. While enjoying the idyllic surroundings and mouth watering food, Katy begins to see her mother in a new light as an independent woman who desires things she never knew about. As the days speed by too quickly Katy is desperate to figure out her own reality. I often imagine what a wonderful thing it would be if children could see that their parents have dreams and hopes - not just as parents but as people. Simply adored this armchair travel to the most beautiful setting folded between the pages of a mother-daughter love story. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
