What if falling in love means breaking someone’s heart?
That’s the situation Lizzie Delford finds herself in in our June Spotlight Pick Lizzie & Dante by Mary Bly. On the heels of a difficult breakup and a devastating diagnosis, Lizzie heads out on one last lavish vacation on the sun-kissed Italian island of Elba, with her best friend and his movie-star boyfriend in tow. Love is the last thing she expects to find . . . but then she meets sardonic chef Dante and his wry 12-year-old daughter, Etta.
Lizzie & Dante is a luscious story of romance, courage, and Italian wine. It will have you wondering if it’s right to fall in love if time is short, and how far we should travel to find a future worth fighting for.
Join us on Thursday, June 24 at 7:30pm ET on Zoom for a Virtual Happy Hour to discuss these themes and so much more—with a special guest appearance by author Mary Bly herself!
