Under The Italian Sun
The #1 bestseller is back with an uplifting, escapist read that will brighten the gloomiest day!
Published May 13, 2021
A warm, sun-baked terrace.
The rustle of verdant green vines.
The sun slowly dipping behind the Umbrian mountains.
And the chink of wine glasses as the first cork of the evening is popped…
Welcome to Italy. A place that holds the answer to Zia-Lucia Costa Chalmers’ many questions. Not least, how she ended up with such a mouthful of a name.
When Zia discovers that her mother wasn’t who she thought she was, she realises the time has come to search out the Italian family she’s never known.
However, as she delves into the secrets of her past, she doesn’t bargain on having to think about her future too. But with local vineyard owner, Piero, living next door, Zia knows she has a serious distraction who may prove difficult to ignore…
This summer, join Zia as she sets out to uncover her past. But can she find the future she’s always dreamed of along the way?
Weaving family secrets, wine, sun and romance – this book has it all. I was immediately drawn into the story and piecing together our main characters past, I enjoyed how fast pace the story was and how the events start to unveil themselves pretty early in the book. Zia is brought to Italy not on vacation but on a journey to find herself and uncover her family history and it was a delightful ride. I absolutely loved the setting, if you’re looking for some armchair travel, this is it!
I enjoyed a lot of the main characters, my favourite was the chemistry between Zia and Piero. Under the Italian Sun was a great read that filled me with romance and wanderlust. This is my first from Sue Moorcroft and certainly not my last.
