The New York Times bestselling author of the “heartwarming, heartbreaking, and hard to put down” (Laurie Frankel, New York Times bestselling author) modern classic In Five Years returns with a moving and unforgettable exploration of the powerful bond between mother and daughter set on the breathtaking Amalfi Coast. When Katy’s mother dies, she is left reeling. Carol wasn’t just Katy’s mom, but her best friend and first phone call. She had all the answers and now, when Katy needs her the most, she is gone. To make matters worse, their planned mother-daughter trip of a lifetime looms: two weeks in Positano, the magical town Carol spent the summer right before she met Katy’s father. Katy has been waiting years for Carol to take her, and now she is faced with embarking on the adventure alone. But as soon as she steps foot on the Amalfi Coast, Katy begins to feel her mother’s spirit. Buoyed by the stunning waters, beautiful cliffsides, delightful residents, and, of course, delectable food, Katy feels herself coming back to life. And then Carol appears—in the flesh, healthy, sun-tanned, and thirty years old. Katy doesn’t understand what is happening, or how—all she can focus on is that she has somehow, impossibly, gotten her mother back. Over the course of one Italian summer, Katy gets to know Carol, not as her mother, but as the young woman before her. She is not exactly who Katy imagined she might be, however, and soon Katy must reconcile the mother who knew everything with the young woman who does not yet have a clue. Rebecca Serle’s next great love story is here, and this time it’s between a mother and a daughter. With her signature “heartbreaking, redemptive, and authentic” (Jamie Ford, New York Times bestselling author) prose, Serle has crafted a transcendent novel about how we move on after loss, and how the people we love never truly leave us.

With its evocative images, this book immerses us in a world of dolce vita, youthful enthusiasm, the joy and beauty of Italian holidays -- an atmosphere filled with young girls' laughter, stifling heat, the sounds of crashing surf and the playful cat-and-mouse games of the sexes. And he also tells us a story -- a tale of people of all generations who leave home each year to return to a familiar place that is close to their hearts, where they pursue the very same holiday rituals year in and year out: Miss Rimini for one short summer season, a passionate kiss on the beach, nightly parties in the bars and restaurants, the joyful exuberance of youthful cliques seeking to experience everything life offers nowhere else in just a few short weeks and to forget what everyday life is. With his concentrated, atmospheric images, which bear the imprint of a fascinated, passionate observer, Claude Nori succeeds masterfully in capturing that mixture of Mediterranean lifestyle and carefree holiday spirit that awakens memories and longings in us all.

This is supposed to be the best summer of Nicoletta Pagani's life-that is, until la famiglia partly forces, partly beckons her, to Italy. The single-most important presence in her Toronto home, la famiglia presides over Sunday mornings, the long distance calls that rejuvenate her father's soul, and the austere sepia portraits that follow her every move with a judging stare. Now, her father insists that she make the trip to find out "where she came from."Amid hostile confrontations and unspoken words, Nicoletta finds herself a stranger in the seemingly insignificant town of Portali, hidden in the pristine mountains of central Italy. She discovers the idiosyncrasies of Portali's residents: the twin bachelors who own the bakery (and are also murder suspects), the soccer-crazy priest of the only church, and the harpy who runs the only grocery store. But Nicoletta is even more surprised to learn that haunted homes, werewolves, and witches are as common as afternoon strolls.The young visitor from Canada sees her future revealed in tarot cards, falls victim to the malocchio-a curse laid upon an unaware and helpless target-and explores the eternal city of Rome. With her new Italian friends, Nicoletta is swept into the town's social pains and pleasures during one magical summer in Italy.

Fore, bella! From the author of critically acclaimed Golfing with God comes a charming narrative of a hole-in-one trip through Italy -- a glorious summer of golfing, eating, and learning how to slow down and enjoy life. In the summer of 2007, Roland Merullo was feeling a little burnt out by the frantic pace of his life in the United States and decided to rent an Italian villa near the shore of Lake Como. He arrived in Italy with his wife and two young daughters, hoping the Mediterranean air would teach him to appreciate the more relaxed, Italian way of living: a focus on food, family, and fun. An avid golfer and golf writer, Merullo also set out to enjoy one of Italy's lesser-known treasures: excellent golf on some gorgeous courses. With his customary wit, keen eye, and down-to-earth style, Merullo shares this fascinating account of his summer in Italy, offering detailed and often humorous descriptions of wonderful meals, colorful characters, rounds of golf at some of the most beautiful courses in Europe, and precious time spent with family. The Italian Summer brings to life the myriad joys of Italian existence in a way that all lovers of food, wine, travel, and the proverbial "good walk spoiled" will savor.
