When Elizabeth Caldwell planned a trip to Florence with her daughter, Marina, she secretly hoped for a warm, fuzzy bonding experience worthy of a Lifetime movie. But Marina -twentyone, newly graduated, and close to her mum in many ways -has always been more the PBS type: dependable, practical, and completely in control. Elizabeth knows Marina wants to avoid the kind of "stupid mistake" that left Elizabeth a single mother at twenty-two, and she's bitten her tongue as Marina settles for a wealthy fiance who gives. her everything she thinks she wants. After all, Elizabeth-unable to bring herself to fully commit to the man she has dated for years -is hardly an expert in romance. Still, a lot can happen on vacation, especially in Tuscany, where every scent borne on the warm breeze inspires delight, and every view makes the heart soar. There, on streets once walked by Dante and Michaelangelo, Marina is blindsided by a gorgeous Italian named Luca who shows her how gloriously unpredictable passion can be, and Elizabeth finally lets go of the role that has defined her for so long to embrace her own uncertain future...

There was so much going on that I felt like the trip was much longer than two weeks. Having gone on some trips with my own mother, I could totally relate to the mother - daughter dynamics. I did stop reading the italicized sections at the beginning of each chapter as I found them distracting and annoying. Overall, a pleasant read.

Great view of mother-daughter relations.
