Home to Italy
In this delightful, moving debut novel, Peter Pezzelli brings to life the earthy sensuality of Tuscany— the smell of just-baked bread wafting through the village piazza; the shopkeepers sweeping the sidewalks under the warm, early morning sun; groups of cyclists dotting the mountain roads—and spins a story of May-December romance as sharp and delicious as the olives of Villa San Giuseppe…
Fresh out of college, Carter Quinn has returned to his home in North Providence, Rhode Island, unsure of just about everything except his plans to go to Italy and pursue the woman of his dreams. To do that, he needs to learn to speak Italian, and only one man is right for the job--Giancarlo Rosa... if Carter can survive him.
With humor and warmth, Peter delivers another winning novel about how much we need the closeness of family—even if we don’t know it.
At once both funny and heartwarming, with one of the most unique, unforgettable narrators to come along in years, Every Sunday is a warm, winning novel rich in hope, wisdom and the surprising strength of second chances.
