What a great story about love and letting go, committment and forgivness of oneself. Plus you gotta just love they way they talk about all the Italian villas and food!!! Its somewhere I would love to go and travel along this story.

This was the first book I have read by Elizabeth Adler....I have read three more since and this is my absolute favorite! I couldn't put it down. The descriptions of Italy are so beautifully detailed that you feel like you are there. The romance was great...loved the story. A great summer read....

For those who like chick flicks, but prefer to read them instead of see them on a screen, this is a book for you. Great fun and perfect for a rainy miserable day---it'll uplift you--kind of like drinking a cup of special tea, with a shot of single malt scotch thrown in to the brew. Good stuff!

I was ordering another book when I saw that B&N recommended this book. I bought it and dove right in. It visited many of the wonderful places my husband and I toured in Italy. Specific place names were mentioned and I read them aloud to my husband. We started making plans to return to Italy next year. Althought the main characher, Gemma, is a doctor, she is not very intelligent. She is rather the weak link in the book but all in all it was a fun, light read. Great for vacation when you don't want to think too much.

This book was set in such a great place. Elizabeth Adler know how to put the reader into her world. Reading the book takes you to Tuscany to Rome and to all the places that Gemma and Ben go. I could not put the book down in the two days I read this.

SUMMER IN TUSCANY........ what a pleasure to pick up a book and simply fall into its pages, and into its character and the wonderful Tuscan village Elizabeth Adler has created.... I was right there with the Jericho family, in the little inn with the brass beds and the wobbly shower....... I could even feel the heat of the sun on the rampant zucchini, and on the tomato plants climbing up the old stone wall... and taste them with basil and mozzarella later...... This author knows how to bring you into her world with a love story that you envy, a teenager whose moods you recognize and an Italian grandmother who runs everybody's lives. Vivid, colorful, fun - and touching.

Thirty-eight year old divorcee Gemma Jericho works extremely hard as resident in charge of Bellevue Hospital Trauma Department as there is never a void of customers. She also feels like the sandwich generation struggling between her mom Nonna and her third generation American teen Livvie.

Nonna receives a letter from Bella Piacere, the village she grew up in Italy, but has not been back to in four decades. The priest informs Nonna that she has inherited property. Using guilt as a sharp sword, Nonna persuades her two descendants to come with her to Italy so she can see her home for the last time and to learn what has been bequest to her.

Though they kind of met in Rome, Gemma and Long Islander Ben Raphael formally meet in Tuscany. He claims to own the same villa that the priest insists has been bestowed on Nonna. Though Gemma and Ben are very attracted to one another, the villa more than the past failures in relationships stand in the way of anything permanent.

Fans of relationship dramas will want to read SUMMER IN TUSCANY as the tale contains strong characters representing three generations struggling to connect with one another. The story line is well written though the bias is clearly pointed towards the fresh rural countryside over the smoggy urban areas. However, the key that makes the plot succeed is the rotation of voices, though mostly Gemma, so that the audience understands what each of the protagonists feel and thus can discern why relationships are difficult to form and tougher to maintain.
