Like a fine wine, love embodies an honest blend of emotions, but deception and betrayal can sour even the sweetest and purist of loves. Between passion and love lies faith--believing and trusting when all reason cautions against it. From the glitz of New York City to the vineyards of Tuscany, Gianna is a compelling story of family and tradition as a successful young architect finds love and romance only to have her life twisted in another direction. Gianna consistently works hard for her personal and professional achievements, yet love presents itself through a simple dance. Charming and passionate, Vincenzo invites her into his life--a sensual and esoteric mix of complication. Though romance surrounds them with the promise of forever, Gianna and Vincenzo seemed cursed by what first brought them together--their Italian heritage and commitment to family. But everything has a purpose . . . even heartache and separation. Some loves are timeless; others must endure the test of time.Holmes, Mary Jo is the author of 'Gianna A Love Story' with ISBN 9780595287253 and ISBN 0595287255.
