Description: After watching a romantic Italian movie together, four women in a therapy group discuss the question, If Italy is so wonderful and therapeurtic, what are we doing in Ohio?" Dubbing themselves "The Crazy Ladies of Oakwood," they all take off for Florence, packing their worries with them. Their lives will change forever in this seat of the Renaissance, but not at all in the ways they expect. Possessed of more than artistic treasures, the Italians seem to be born with the unique gifts of agape (unconditional love) and phillia (love of mankind). It is this balm that is applied gently into their weary souls. The Crazy Ladies slowly transform while embracing these Italian virtues. They discover romance as well as a healing that binds them together and puts them on the road to recovery, "The Only Road to Paradise."

“It's always seemed to me that flirtation is a man's device for avoiding responsibility. He can say whatever he wants and knows he won't be taken seriously.”
G.G. Vandagriff, The Last Waltz

“That's life, MacKenzie. We can't go back, only forward. And we can't afford to waste the past. The best we can do is reframe it. We only have so many years on this earth. They all count.”
G.G. Vandagriff, The Only Way to Paradise

“Remember the Duomo," he said.
"Bruneschelli just proceeded brick by brick. He never knew what he would do from one day to the next. He worked in faith, and according to the legend he never doubted that the next step to creating the world's first dome would be given to him in the moment that he needed it. He never saw the end from the beginning. None of us do.”
G.G. Vandagriff, The Only Way to Paradise
