Overview

CHIANTI SOULS is a magical tale of love, surprises and fate...set in the heart of Tuscany, in Chianti...home of legendary wine...home of passionate Italian souls.

When artist Mary Sarto visits for the first time she unexpectedly becomes tangled in vines of timeless love after she meets Luca Rusconi at a fifteenth-century Chianti farmhouse. An inexplicable connection rattles them, as if their love story continues from another lifetime...but neither is looking for love. Mary is visiting Italy with her boyfriend Garrett Hansen, who promised a dream vacation, and Luca is recovering from a recently broken engagement with his Florentine girlfriend. When Garrett is forced to return home early to Philadelphia for a work crisis, she boldly stays alone, and Luca shows her an enchanting Italy not found in a tour book. After the week in Italy, her heart is torn between the two men while her head is clouded with misjudgment of both, complicated by lies and betrayal. It is only when she discovers secrets hidden in two mysterious keepsakes found in Tuscany and Venice that her destiny in love is revealed.

Chianti Souls is a debut novel by Karen Ross, and will have you dreaming of falling in love, and even better, magically falling in love in Italy... In this romantic travelogue, Karen gives you an insider’s view of beautiful Tuscan hill towns and villages, and then weaves them into a passionate tale of timeless love.

Meet the Author

As a teenager Karen Ross read an excerpt from Alan Alda’s commencement speech to the Connecticut College class of 1980, and remarkably, his words still inspire her today. Mr. Alda said to the young graduates, "You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You can't get there by bus, only by hard work and risk and by not quite knowing what you're doing, but what you'll discover will be wonderful. What you'll discover will be yourself." Since then, Karen has challenged herself personally and professionally to live on that outside edge of comfortable, and writing this debut novel did just that. Not a classically trained writer, she had a story to tell about life experiences: Gutsy romantic love (something not easily found, and often lost); beautiful and romantic Italy; delectable food and wine (especially Chianti); and passionate living and traveling. So, she put pen to paper, not sure of what she was getting herself into, and the experience was sometimes easy, and often challenging, but was always exhilarating and satisfying...definitely outside of her city of comfort...but undoubtedly worth the risk and the work.
