Raffaella Moretti, by far the most beautiful girl in the southern
Italian town of Triento, is about to marry the only boy she has
ever loved. It seems that nothing but happiness lies in store for
her. Yet, just one year later, she is a widow, and has taken a job
as housekeeper in the Villa Rosa, working for a young American. As
Raffaella struggles to recapture her lost happiness she starts
looking for ways to help those around her to do the same. There is
Silvana the baker's wife, her passion barely hidden; Carlotta the
gardener's daughter with her mysterious grief, and the kind and
gentle owner of the Gypsy Tearoom who offers Raffaella friendship.
As the lives of these villagers interweave, Raffaella is pulled
into a conflict that threatens to divide Triento and destroy all
she holds dear. Filled with love, delicious food and wonderful
characters, SUMMER AT THE VILLA ROSA is like taking a seat in a
sun-drenched piazza and absorbing yourself in the sights and sounds
of Italian life.
