Some brief overview of book

Reeling from a painful break-up, Jolene Whitacre, a restaurateur in the Finger Lakes region of New York, finds herself without a job or a home. Filippo Garaventi, a debonair Italian hotelier spending the summer in Ithaca, approaches Jolene aboard a tour boat and immediately pursues a relationship. Filippo’s talk of love and commitment rekindles Jolene’s smoldering dreams, while his descriptions of Locanda Luisa, the quaint hotel owned by his family in the village of Manarola, in Italy’s fabled Cinque Terre, make her fantasies take flight.

Filippo’s unexpected proposal to return to Italy with him, marry him, and run the Locanda together convince Jolene the time has come to embark on a new life. Once in Italy, though, nothing is as she envisioned. Manarola is stunning but the Locanda is crumbling.

The Garaventis are not the typical Italian family she hoped to embrace as her own, and Filippo himself seems different, making Jolene wonder how forthcoming he has been about his past life and future expectations. Determined to forge ahead with their plans, Jolene stumbles upon disconcerting truths, ultimately finding herself the main player in a drama for which she is utterly unprepared. Written by the co-author of the beloved Iris & Lily series, Gently, Jolene is the story of a woman's need to hope, of her desire to reinvent her existence, and her courage to cope with unforeseen obstacles.

The colorful descriptions sweep the reader away to the mountainside vineyards of the Cinque Terre, with its spectacular landscapes, dramatic coastline and magical atmosphere that inspire love and adventure in the hearts of those who visit, and dreams in the minds of those who follow Jolene in her pursuit of a new life and the happiness that has always eluded her.
