When Katy's mother dies, she is left reeling. Carol wasn't just Katy's mom, but her best friend and first phone call. To make matters worse, the mother-daughter trip of a lifetime looms: two weeks in Positano. Katy has been waiting years for Carol to take her, and now she is faced with embarking on the adventure alone. But as soon as she steps foot on the beautiful Amalfi Coast, Katy begins to feel her mother's spirit. And then Carol appears for real--in the flesh, healthy and sun-tanned... and thirty years old. Katy doesn't understand what is happening, or how.
“Poignant and ultimately uplifting. The mouthwatering descriptions of Katy's food and the lush Italian coast bring a strong, atmospheric sense of place. Recommend to fans of Helen Fisher's Faye, Faraway (2021) and those who enjoy being transported to other countries through fiction." –Booklist
"The novel is about the real meaning of love and friendship and the bonds that tie us all together."-- Good Morning America
Rebecca Serle is also the author of In Five Years, The Dinner List, and the young adult novel The Edge of Falling. She also developed the hit TV adaptation Famous in Love, based on her YA series of the same name.
