Details: Product Description Samantha's nest is empty now, and she's not sure about much of anything - life in Dallas, marriage, happiness, the future. How had she ended up here - wondering who she was, what she wanted from her life now"But not one aha! moment -- not a single incident that would suggest disrupting your life of twenty-some odd years was an obvious or necessary choice. No, it creeps up on you, one day at a time, while you're busy living. You hear your voice, at first a whisper, begging you to listen. 'Where have you gone?"She heads to Italy in search of answers, prepared to leave the last twenty-five years of her life behind. Connecting with her husband, Michael, proves to be more than she'd bargained for. Samantha soon discovers he has secrets and an agenda of his own that could change their lives forever. Life has had its way with them and nothing is quite what they'd imagined it would be. Over seven days in one of the most romantic countries in the world, Samantha faces the past she thought she had overcome and begins to redefine her role as a woman, wife and mother."A book not only for empty-nesters, but for everyone who needs to feel that we are not alone on this journey... this dance...our lives."- Pamela Robins, Author, Meditating With Animals"A true page-turner! Haven't felt like this about a book in forever - or since 50 Shades!"- Anna Stone, Principal, Stone Partners PR"In this debut novel, ... In the sun-kissed Tuscany region of Italy, Samantha is reexamining her life and her 25-year marriage to Michael. The ensuing narrative gives Samantha's choices the gravitas they deserve as she vacillates between different paths to take... revealing the difficulty of navigating a troubled relationship."-Kirkus Reviews Review "Ms. Greenberg takes the "where do we go from here?" life dilemma and sets it in a sexy contemporary setting with characters who are heartbreaking, inspiring, and thoroughly relatable." Christopher Soldo, Director/Producer The author has masterfully crafted an in depth look into the vividly described characters minds and their marriage. Several important themes, including honesty, empty nest syndrome, and inter personal communication, are interwoven in the narrative. The story is packed with emotion and passion. The novel takes place in Italy and the setting is so well depicted that readers are immersed into the setting. This book is well worth reading! Highly recommended. Amazon Reader I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It kept me turning pages as I wondered what was going to happen (and what had happened) between Samantha and Michael. Not only did I get swept along with the characters, I desperately wanted to be swept away to Italy. Beautiful descriptions made me long to go to Florence. Amazon Reader Mel Greenberg beautifully portrays the journey of a woman in crisis. This book not only resonates with those experiencing "empty nest syndrome" but also those who have lived through or are facing other seismic, life-shattering, unforeseen events. When the coping mechanisms she has relied on for decades no longer serve her, Samantha is forced to take action to rebuild a life worth living. Her extremes in her struggles are believable and compelling. A GREAT BINGE READ. Looking forward to more. Amazon Reader This is a beautifully written, introspective look at the struggles common to marriage, life, and rediscovering who we are individually and as partners. It highlights the struggle of staying close to your partner through not only life's challenges of raising children, illness, etc., but also through the more subtle enemy of familiarity and habit. A deep and many-layered read, this book is sure to resonate with almost any reader Goodreader Reader The beautifully written storyline grabbed my attention from the very first page and the well developed characters kept me totally captivated until the turn of the very last page! This was the first book that I have read by this author and it definitely
