Description
An International Bestseller!A LibraryReads and Indie Next Pick!A trio of second-born daughters sets out on a whirlwind journey through the lush Italian countryside to break the family curse that says they’ll never find love, by New York Times bestseller Lori Nelson Spielman, author of The Life List.   Since the day Filomena Fontana cast a curse upon her sister more than two hundred years ago, not one second-born Fontana daughter has found lasting love. Some, like second-born Emilia, the happily-single baker at her grandfather’s Brooklyn deli, claim it’s an odd coincidence. Others, like her sexy, desperate-for-love cousin Lucy, insist it’s a true hex. But both are bewildered when their great-aunt calls with an astounding proposition: If they accompany her to her homeland of Italy, Aunt Poppy vows she’ll meet the love of her life on the steps of the Ravello Cathedral on her eightieth birthday, and break the Fontana Second-Daughter Curse once and for all.   Against the backdrop of wandering Venetian canals, rolling Tuscan fields, and enchanting Amalfi Coast villages, romance blooms, destinies are found, and family secrets are unearthed—secrets that could threaten the family far more than a centuries-old curse.

shortDescription
A trio of second-born daughters set out to break the family curse that says they'll never find love on a whirlwind journey through the lush Italian countryside by New York Times bestseller Lori Nelson Spielman, author of The Life List.

Since the day Filomena Fontana cast a curse upon her sister more than two hundred years ago, not one second-born Fontana daughter has found lasting love. Some, like second-born Emilia, the happily-single baker at her grandfather's Brooklyn deli, claim it's an odd coincidence. Others, like her sexy, desperate-for-love cousin Lucy, insist it's a true hex. But both are bewildered when their great-aunt calls with an astounding proposition: If they accompany her to her homeland of Italy, Aunt Poppy vows she'll meet the love of her life on the steps of the Ravello Cathedral on her eightieth birthday, and break the Fontana Second-Daughter Curse once and for all.

        February 17, 2020
        In Spielman’s sparkling follow-up to Sweet Forgiveness, two second-born daughters hope to break a curse that has been in their family for generations. Twenty-nine-year-old Emelia Antonelli works in her grandmother’s Brooklyn bakery and is happily single, or so she tells herself. After her great aunt Poppy, also a second-born daughter, invites Emelia and her cousin Lucy to join her on an eight-day, all expenses paid trip to Italy, Poppy claims that on her upcoming 80th birthday she will meet the love of her life, Rico, on the steps of the Ravello Cathedral, breaking the Fontana Second Daughter Curse, which dooms all second-born daughters to a life without love, once and for all. Emelia isn’t sure she believes in the curse, but she’s ready for adventure, and soon she and Lucy (also a second-born daughter) are off to Tuscany. Emelia’s narrative intertwines with Poppy and Rico’s achingly romantic story, and the vibrant Poppy inspires Emelia and Lucy to open their hearts to the possibilities of love and a life fully lived. Spielman brings Tuscany to vivid life and offers more than a few surprises along the way. Fans of An Affair to Remember, Under the Tuscan Sun, and the like will be enthralled.
