Italian for Beginners
This is a romance type of fiction story book wrote by Kristin Harmel.
Light reading, and predictable story book but suitable for fun leisure reading. The book has well pictured the heart of Roman city that makes the reader wants to visit Italy some day! Not to mention having the desire to watch "Roman Holiday" too! (If you know what I mean. ^^)
Love the Italian elements and food descriptions so much! (it makes me feel absolute hungry and wanted to taste those Italy foods as well!) Some moral values were well taught in the book too! So pupils, have fun reading it!
The book description as below:
"Thirty-four-year-old Manhattan accountant Cat Connelly has always lived life on the safe side. But after her little sister gets married, Cat wonders if she has condemned herself to a life of boredom by playing by the rules. She decides to take a chance for once, accepting an invitation to spend a month with an old flame in Italy. But her reunion with the slick and gorgeous Francesco is short-lived, and she finds herself suddenly alone in Rome. Now, she must see if she has the courage to live outside the lines for the first time - and to face a past she never understood. It will take an unexpected friendship with a fiery Italian waitress, a whirlwind Vespa tour of the Eternal City with a handsome stranger, and a surprise encounter with an old acquaintance to show Cat that life doesn't always work out the way you expect, but sometimes you have to have fall in order to fly."
P.S. Ciao, bella~!
