Hm. I loved her Big Stone Gap series but this one, like Lucia, Lucia, was a little blah. They seem to follow a real pattern now – woman, independent, has some tragedies, marries (or doesn’t), goes to Italy and has an epiphany, comes back to the US, eventually dies. It was OK, but a bit samey and a very quick read. Oh well.
