Despite life taking them in very different directions, their snatched days in the sun in little hidden villas are crucial to them all. Escape, celebration, recovery—over the years the holidays change their lives. Rosie was always the odd one out, initially only invited as the others felt sorry for her, but it seems that in the end, she might be the one whose life is touched the most by her villa days—for it's there that she meets Enzo. The eldest son of an olive oil dynasty in southern Italy, he is being groomed to one day take over as head of the family. Rosie and Enzo have a vacation romance that seems set to become something more serious until she discovers he is not entirely what he seems. Years later they meet again and this time Rosie must decide how much she is prepared to compromise for the sake of love.

"A lovely read . . . genuine heart and true observation." Elizabeth Buchan, author, Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman"Pulls off the rare trick of being both gritty and lyrical, heartrending and compelling. A novel about how easy it is to become an observer in your own life, and the joy of learning to live again. It also made me very hungry!" Jojo Moyes, author, The Last Letter from Your Love
