Villa Serena by Domenica De Rosa

Who could ask for more, a lovely book about food, a restored Tuscan farmhouse and a sprinkling of romance…….

villa serena

A heartfelt, witty story of one woman’s journey from heartbreak to adventure, full of gorgeous Italian flavour.
Emily Robertson looks like the woman who has it all: the lovingly restored Tuscan farmhouse, the three beautiful children, the successful, attentive husband…..

But when her husband dumps her by text message, she has to face up to some stark home truths. How will Emily cope, stranded in the countryside with no man, no money, dodgy phrasebook Italian and a psychotic cleaner? Her eldest girl is out of her depth with the local seducer, her middle daughter is dangerously underweight, and her darling baby is fast becoming a brat.
But soon Emily finds herself being drawn into the village of Monte Albano, and discovering a more genuine Italy, darker and more intriguing than she had ever imagined. She and her children are outsiders no more – and if she can get over a slightly embarrassing obsession with her youthful first love, a roguish stranger might be about to show her the time of her life…
