Title The Sweet Life [electronic resource] :

Imprint [S.l.]: Lyrical Press, 2017.


Description 240 p.
Summary In Italy, the best attractions are always off the beaten path . . .   Mamie Weber doesn’t know why she survived that terrible car accident five years ago. Physically, she has only a slight reminder—but emotionally, the pain is still fresh. Deep down she knows her husband would have wanted her to embrace life again. Now she has an opportunity to do just that, spending two weeks in Tuscany reviewing a tour company for her employer’s popular travel guide series. The warmth of the sun, the centuries-old art, a villa on the Umbrian border—it could be just the adventure she needs.   But with adventure comes the unexpected . . . like discovering that her entire tour group is made up of aging ex-hippies reminiscing about their Woodstock days. Or finding herself drawn to the guide, Julian, who is secretly haunted by a tragedy of his own, and seems to disapprove any time she tries something remotely risky—like an impromptu scooter ride with a local man.   As they explore the hilltop towns of Tuscany, Mamie knows that when this blissful excursion is over, she’ll have to return to reality. But when you let yourself wander, life can take some interesting detours . . .   Praise for Sharon Struth   “Struth has a gift for layering stories within stories while keeping them all connected.” --Library Journal   “Struth is an author to watch!” --Laura Drake, author of RITA-award winner The Sweet Spot   “Sharon Struth writes a good story about love and loss.
