I sat down with an early ARC of The Star-Crossed Sisters of Tuscany on a lovely sunny afternoon and couldn't stop reading. Needless to say, dinner was late at our house... When Emilia and her cousin set off to break the curse of loveless second sisters under the guidance of her great-aunt, she discovers far more about her family than simple curses. Lori Nelson Spielman's deft and tender touch illuminates a glorious journey through Italy, and the heart. The Star-Crossed Sisters of Tuscany is unfl ...more

This is the perfect Spring vacation read!

This a delightful story about family, myths, and love. It follows two incredible women, Poppy and Emilia, as they reflect on the past and push for a better future. In their family, second-born daughters are cursed from finding love. While all the ladies of the family pretend they don't believe it, the truth is that it's sort of become a self-fulfilling prophecy for them. Poppy is determined to break that though on her eightieth birthday when she must mee

With lush descriptions of Italy, poignant writing and intriguing family secrets, The Star Crossed Sisters of Tuscany is as effervescent as an Aperol Spritz and written in Lori Nelson Spielman’s signature heartfelt style. Emilia’s journey of self-discovery transported me to Venice’s enchanting canals and the striking beauty of the Amalfi Coast, while Poppy’s story—set sixty years earlier—wove in the lasting impact of the Berlin Wall. I didn’t want to leave Nelson Spielman’s lovably flawed cast of ...more

From my blurb for this gorgeous book: “In The Star-Crossed Sisters of Tuscany, Lori Nelson Spielman has created a stunning, heartwarming, multi-generational story of family secrets and self-discovery, spanning the globe from New York to Italy. Emilia, Poppy, and Lucy’s deeply emotional, life-changing, and life-affirming journeys instantly captured my heart, broke it then put it back together. Spielman will make you believe everything you want to be is possible.” I received an advanced reader cop ...more
