    Enjoy!

    The heroine is a lady who is engaged to someone she doesn't love but of whom her parents approve. She is part of a rich family and travels to find specialty items to sell in the family's retail business. She meet a widower in Italy and they fall in love. Thus begins this tale. This is a good rainy day movie that doesn't tax one's intellect. The characters are not picture perfect but are warm and well developed. One doesn't have to think just feel with this one. It is not for those who are morosely anal.
