I related to this book on so many levels. My mom was also my best friend and my everything, so when she passed away suddenly, I felt so many of the emotions that Katy had. I thought the author did a wonderful job handling that sense of loss and really tapped into those feelings. I think many of us would love to know our parents as their younger selves and ask all the questions we didn't ask when we had the chance. The descriptions of the Amalfi coast are so vivid that I felt transported away from the snowy days we have had here.
One Italian Summer was a beautiful novel that showcased the power of family bond and the love between a mother and daughter. I received this book courtesy of the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
