Summary

Three women. One family curse. The summer of a lifetime.

For generations, no second-born daughter in the Fontana family has married. Lucy desperately wants to find love, but for her cousin Emilia, their family curse is a blessing in disguise.

But then their Great Aunt Poppy declares she’ll reunite with her long-lost love on her 18th birthday - and break the curse once and for all.

And so the three women embark on a journey to Tuscany to fulfil Poppy’s last wish. But the secrets they uncover there could change their family forever....

A gorgeous story about love, family and finding yourself in the unlikeliest of places, for fans of The Spanish Promise by Karen Swan and The Dressmaker’s Gift by Fiona Valpy.

Long Lasting Love

The quality of the love reminded me of mum and dad: I cried a lot.

I didn’t want the book to ends

What an amazingly funny loving book that has you laughing out loud and grabbing a hanky at the same time. I come from Italian heritage so for me it brought back lots of wonderful memories thank you Lori
