Lingua Terra: A Novel by Leah Laiman

From the acclaimed writer of some of the most unforgettable love stories on television comes a new kind of hybrid: compelling romance, vivid guidebook and delectable cookbook all in one.

After losing her Wall Street job, dumping her boyfriend, and moving back in with her parents, Claudia Davis needs a new life. Then, she reads about Le Marche, a region of Italy with breathtaking scenery, a rich heritage and a tradition of farm-to-table culinary delights. She’s never heard of it, but since it’s undiscovered it’s still affordable — and she’s got just enough to make it through a year.

On the back of a Vespa, with her handsome Italian teacher as her guide, Claudia discovers the treasures — and foods — of the region. But things get complicated when she crosses paths — and swords — with Giancarlo Russo, a brilliant but embittered chef. With his potential and her ambition, it’s clear they could build something together. But can they make room for love when there’s a Michelin star at stake?

Featuring recipes by Lucio Pompili
