Whenever Meg Pomeroy closes her eyes and thinks of home she always envisions Florence Italy a place she has never been.Her feeling of home came from the paintings that hung on her Italian grandmother's walls, especially the one her great-great grandfather painted that shows a young girl reaching toward a statue.She has always longed to go to Italy, and her father made a deathbed promise to her grandmother that he would take her, but it never seemed to happen. When finally at the age of thirty her father tells her to book the trip as she finally embarks on her long awaited dream trip, what will she find in Florence,Italy.

The author's descriptions brings to life the city of Florence, she made me feel as if I was seeing things thru the eyes of the characters. Meg wasn't the strongest character, but as the story progresses she comes into her own it was so nice to see her grow and change as the story progressed. I thought the author did a good job of giving us weaving the past together with the present, she did it smoothly making the story easy to follow. While there are Christian messages woven into the story, they are very well done, and don't dominate the story. If you enjoy a well written story, with beautiful descriptions and words that just flow off of the page, a sprinkling of romance and a story that reminds us of the ties that bind, then your certainly going to want to read this one.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided in exchange for an honest review.
