  • Young Love and Romance in Italy in the 1950s

    This is a wonderful story of an actress's life in the early 1950s. This is a wonderful, historical piece that this author does so well. We follow a young woman's life from being 17 until her mid to late 60s. The author presents the story and descriptions so well it is as if the reader is right there. The wines, architecture, and art are wonderful. But the descriptions of Lake Como with the wineries, fruit production, and silk factories are very special. There are plenty of family issues and secrets that are dealt with over time, too. This author always writes a quality novel and this one does not disappoint. I can't wait to read her next work. I received this ARC book for free from Booksprout and this is my honest review.

  • Hepburn's Necklace, A love that never died

    This was one beautiful story of fate and a second chance for both Ruby and Ariana as they meet Niccolò who was once very important in Ruby's life, and Alessandro who comes to mean a lot to Ariana. Ruby and Niccolò will learn who tore them apart all those years ago. Once I started reading this book I was not putting it down until I had finished reading it. I would recommend this book.

  • Beautiful page turner

    I had my doubts as to whether or not I would like this book, but let me tell you, this book is a beautifully written story about second chances, secrets, starting over, and most of all love. I couldn’t flip the pages fast enough. You will absolutely love Ruby and Ariana as the main female characters. I won’t leave any spoilers, but I will say if you scenes involving beautiful Italy, you won’t be disappointed. Grab your copy and see what happens.

  • Love and pain in a complicated family...

    At the beginning of this book there is a review quote, saying: "Jan Moran is the new queen of epic romance." Which she is. But in this case she is more like the Audrey Hepburn of epic romance. This really is a beautiful book! Or maybe two in one. The one about young love in the 1950's and the one about the older actrice starting a new life. Both stories are so good and emotional. I hated when the jump to the other era came, because I wanted to continue reading. But then the other era tugged my heart and next I had a hard time switching to the former era. And then I finished the book.. It's like saying goodbye to a family I've come to love! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

  • Nothing Much Happening for Too Long

    This is a proper novel-length story, greater than 100K words. Unfortunately, the author chose to make a slow and somewhat confusing start. She was creative with her info-dumping, but their first 10% was mostly that with very little action of any note. Like most readers, I am not a fan of info dumps (though authors seem to love them) because authors need to show not tell… and info dumps are always telling. I actually became bored and even a little confused at all the threads that included the older lady’s present story, her past story, and her great-niece’s story. Even a novel needs to have a moving engine from the beginning to spark interest, and this one did not. I received a free copy of this book, but that did not affect my review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
