Located in Tennessee and Italy, this is a novel of emotions, fear and love. A great Anne Rivers Siddons novel. If you haven't discovered her, try this one.

Anne Rivers Siddons writes deeply into relationships--primarily the one between Catherine Gaillard (thrust into Italy after a phobia prevents her from leaving her mountain-top home in Tennessee for years)and husband Joe, and the nature of their love. Lovely picture of Tuscany along the way.

A single traumatic event from her childhood has irrevocably marked Catherine Gaillard's adulthood, striking her with an almost unconquerable fear of leaving her cloistered mountaintop home in Tennessee for thirty years. But now, in an effort to shake her fears and put the incident behind her, Catherine is embarking on a life-changing vacation to Italy with her husband Joe. As they make their way across the beautiful countryside of Tuscany with two other couples, Cat and Joe soon find themselves being pulled in separate directions, and the fabric of their marriage begins to unravel. And a journey that began as a carefree tour crosses unexpected boundaries, carrying them into the heart of their relationship, becoming the ultimate test of their love.

I truly did enjoy this book. It was a little slow to get into at first but I give it an A+!
