One Summer Day in Rome by Mark Lamprell. Published by Flatiron Books

Lamprell takes three couples, all of different ages and places them in Rome, vacationing. Then he coaxes the storyline to bring them together, over and over again, throughout the course of the story. There’s a young couple, head over heels at first sight, an older couple considering infidelity and divorce and a still older couple trying to make sense of it all.  Not surprisingly, the oldest couple is by far, the most interesting, but what really brings this story to life is the surroundings. Readers are taken on a tour of the glories of Rome, both past and present and given fascinating little history lessons on the way. A love letter to the power of amour and the beauty of Rome
