Spielman brings the Italian cities to life and you find yourself falling in love with Aunt Poppy, cheering for Emilia to find her true self and Lucy to discover her self worth.
My daughter-in-law, Kayla, ordered The Star-Crossed Sisters of Tuscany for me because she said it sounded like my kind of book. She was right! I really enjoyed it. Thank you for a wonderful story Lori. I highly recommend The Star-Crossed Sisters of Tuscany especially if Italy is a place you dream of visiting.
