Synopsis

Love, Lucy by April Lindner

While backpacking through Florence, Italy, during the summer before she heads off to college, Lucy Sommersworth finds herself falling in love with the culture, the architecture, the food...and Jesse Palladino, a handsome street musician. After a whirlwind romance, Lucy returns home, determined to move on from her vacation flirtation. But just because summer is over doesn't mean Lucy and Jesse have to be, does it? In this stunning novel, April Lindner perfectly captures the highs and lows of a summer love that might just be meant to last beyond the season.

Reviews

Lucy must sort through the muddle of her emotions -- torn between a cerebral, respectable boy and a more passionate one -- and learn to stand on her own convictions. The parallels to A Room with a View contribute to an overarching theme seen in both stories. Publishers Weekly
