Um verão na Itália, uma antiga história de amor e um segredo de família
Depois da morte da mãe, Lina fica com a missão de realizar um último pedido: ir até a Itália para conhecer o pai. Do dia para a noite, ela se vê na famosa paisagem da Toscana, morando em uma casa localizada no mesmo terreno de um cemitério memorial de soldados americanos da Segunda Guerra Mundial, com um homem que nunca tinha ouvido falar. Apesar das belezas arquitetônicas, da história da cidade e das comidas maravilhosas, o que Lina mais quer é ir embora correndo dali.
Mas as coisas começam a mudar quando ela recebe um antigo diário da mãe. Nele, a menina embarca em uma misteriosa história de amor, que pode explicar suas próprias origens. No meio desse turbilhão de emoções, Lina ainda conhece Ren e Thomas, dois meninos lindos que vão mexer ainda mais com seu coração.
Uma trajetória que fará Lina descobrir o amor, a si mesma e também aprender a lidar com a perda. Amor & gelato é uma deliciosa viagem pelos mais românticos pontos turísticos italianos, com direito a tudo de mais intenso que o lugar tem a oferecer: desde paixões até corações partidos.
People go to Italy for love & gelato ... but sometimes they discover much more.
The dying wish of 16-year-old Lina's mother was for her daughter to live in Tuscany and get to know her father, whom Lina has never met. "Howard is the best man I've ever known," her mother says, "he'll keep you safe." Why did her mother wait so long to tell her about him? Lina has a happy life in Seattle and doesn't want to leave. Shortly after she arrives at Howard's home, Lina meets Sonya, who gives Lina a diary that belonged to Lina's mother, the one she had kept while she was a photography student in Florence. While Lina is living her life and exploring Tuscany with her handsome neighbour, Ren, she follows in the footsteps of her mother and gets to know her as never before. She also finds out the truth about her father. Mostly she finds out about herself.
From the author of the New York Times bestselling Love & Gelato comes a heartwarming tale of a road trip through Ireland filled with love, adventure, and the true meaning behind the word family.
Addie is visiting Ireland for her aunt’s over-the-top destination wedding and hoping she can stop thinking about the one thing she did that left her miserable and heartbroken—and threatens her future. But her brother, Ian, isn’t about to let her forget, and his constant needling leads to arguments and even a fistfight between the two once inseparable siblings. Miserable, Addie can’t wait to visit her friend in Italy and leave her brother—and her problems—behind.
So when Addie discovers an unusual guidebook, Ireland for the Heartbroken, hidden in the dusty shelves of the hotel library, she’s able to finally escape her anxious mind and Ian’s criticism.
And then their travel plans change. Suddenly Addie finds herself on a whirlwind tour of the Emerald Isle, trapped in the world’s smallest vehicle with Ian and his admittedly cute, Irish-accented friend Rowan. As the trio journeys over breathtaking green hills, past countless castles, and through a number of fairy-tale forests, Addie hopes her guidebook will heal not only her broken heart, but also her shattered relationship with her brother.
That is if they don’t get completely lost along the way.
Liv Varanakis doesn’t have a lot of fond memories of her father, which makes sense—he fled to Greece when she was only eight. What Liv does remember, though, is their shared love for Greek myths and the lost city of Atlantis. So when Liv suddenly receives a postcard from her father explaining that National Geographic is funding a documentary about his theories on Atlantis—and will she fly out to Greece and help?—Liv jumps at the opportunity.
But when she arrives to gorgeous Santorini, things are a little…awkward. There are so many questions, so many emotions that flood to the surface after seeing her father for the first time in years. And yet Liv doesn’t want their past to get in the way of a possible reconciliation. She also definitely doesn’t want Theo—her father’s charismatic so-called “protégé”—to witness her struggle.
And that means diving into all that Santorini has to offer—the beautiful sunsets, the turquoise water, the hidden caves, and the delicious cuisine. But not everything on the Greek island is as perfect as it seems. Because as Liv slowly begins to discover, her father may not have invited her to Greece for Atlantis, but for something much more important.
"»Love & Gelato« ist eines der Bücher, die man in einem Rutsch durchliest, die Zeit dabei völlig vergisst und wenn man die letzte Seite umblättert und das Buch zuschlägt, wünscht man sich, dass es noch weiter gehen würde (…)." mei-infoeck.at (Jugendportal Tirol)
