That Summer in Ischia by Penny Feeny
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a gentle, easy read, with a vivid Italian backdrop (and some sections in an equally-romanticized Liverpool). The characters are all well-drawn, each with their own faults and foibles, and their stories are compelling. If there's one flaw in the plausibility, it's that everyone seems very quick to forgive people who worm into their lives under false pretences. But I really enjoyed it and would happily read more from this author.
