When Eliana, still called Ellen by her close friends back in America, moved to Italy, the future was bright with promise. Tuscany held magic in its sprawling vineyards, great food, and centuries of art. It was a life of the senses, perfect for a blossoming, talented young artist such as Eliana. Her family and friends back home all thought she had made the right choice in following her heart and the man she fell in love with and married, by moving back to his native country. In America, Eliana's story was that of a fairy tale. But in Italy, in the small, rustic village nestled in the Chianti countryside, Eliana finds her husband to be a very different man. Over time he distances himself from her, leaving Eliana to care for their young son, struggling with the asthma that threatens to take his life.

Very different from his other works, I honestly thought it was from a different author! Amazing descriptions of Italian food, culture and landscapes.

Except for The Christmas Box, I have enjoyed this book of RPEvans the most. The characters are well-developed and believable and I fully invested myself emotionally into the story, loving the ending and wishfully believing it might be true.
