To Tuscany with Love

Gail Mencini (Author)


Can one college semester abroad change the course of a person's life?

Bella Rossini longs for a large family and close friends-two things she has never known. Bella thinks she can handle anything until her mother sends her to Italy for a semester abroad and she finds herself living with seven strangers in a foreign country.

Hope, Bella's likeable roommate for the summer, and the "perfect" twins, Karen and Meghan, quickly become Bella's friends. The guys-Stillman, Phillip, Rune, and Lee-are a mystery to Bella and come from backgrounds as different as their personalities. Stillman, haunted by a hard past, and Phillip, an athlete, are both fueled by competition. Studious Lee is a pre-med student by family mandate, and Rune, who tries to romance all the ladies, is a Hollywood-bound wild child.

These eight college students come together with sizzling chemistry and rebellious humor. In one whirlwind summer, while uncovering the charms of Italy, they discover both friendship and love.

After their summer together, life - and loss - happens.

Thirty years later, Bella receives a mysterious invitation for a reunion of that college semester abroad. She has a score to settle and a dream to pursue. In Tuscany once again, Bella realizes that she is not the only one with secrets, unfulfilled dreams, disappointments, and anger. Bella and her classmates plunge on a startling collision course that none of them could have predicted.

Set against the allure of Tuscany, with an irresistible fusion of heartbreak and humor, this debut novel, "To Tuscany with Love," explores the fear of letting the past determine the future, the promise of new beginnings, and the power of friendship.
