On Our Shelves Now
Ginny Splinter, acclaimed radio host and advice expert, plans a romantic three-week vacation for her upcoming wedding anniversary but her husband has other plans-he wants a divorce. Despite her heartache, Ginny decides to invite four heartbroken strangers to spend the holiday with her. I loved the cast of characters and the way despite their different ages and walks of lives they formed a friendship as their stories unfolded. Phaedra Patrick's descriptions of Italy, its culture, the beautiful locations and the delicious food was a sunny holiday for this reader without leaving home. I highly recommend this charming, relaxing getaway to sunny Italy!— Lisa
When a relationship expert's own marriage falls apart, she invites four strangers to Italy for a vacation of healing and second chances in this uplifting new novel from the author of The Messy Lives of Book People.
Ginny Splinter, acclaimed radio host and advice expert, prides herself on knowing what's best for others. So she's sure her husband, Adrian, will love the special trip to Italy she's planned for their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary. But when Ginny presents the gift to Adrian, he surprises her with his own very different plan--a divorce.
Beside herself with heartache, Ginny impulsively invites four heartbroken listeners to join her in Italy instead while live on air. From hiking the hills of Bologna to riding a gondola in Venice to sharing stories around the dining table of the little Italian hotel, Ginny and her newfound company embark on a vacation of healing.
However, when Adrian starts to rethink their relationship, Ginny must decide whether to commit to her marriage or start afresh, alone. And an unexpected stranger may hold the key to a very different future... Sunny, tender and brimming with charm, The Little Italian Hotel explores marriage, identity and reclaiming the present moment--even if it means leaving the past behind.
