Home means everything to Sienna Rossi.
Four years ago, Sienna defied her father by moving to Australia to obtain her teaching qualifications. Her grand plan is shaken by her father’s unexpected death and a trip back to Tuscany for her grandmother’s eightieth birthday where she renews her close bond with her sister, Alessa.
Teacher Dave Maxwell likes the freedom of his nomadic lifestyle. He works contract-to-contract, moving to different high schools around Australia. He’s in Sydney for a season, caring for his grandma while his aunt is on an extended overseas vacation.
Back in Sydney, Sienna moves in with her Aussie cousins and starts her first teaching job, torn between her dream for a future in Australia and her longing for home. Sienna and Dave work at the same school, attend the same church, and quickly become friends. They are drawn together by circumstances and an undeniable attraction.
But their idyllic time together is temporary. Can the girl from Tuscany and the boy from Australia risk everything for love?
A fun loving Aussie girl at heart, Narelle Atkins was born and raised on the beautiful northern beaches in Sydney, Australia. She has settled in Canberra with her husband and children. A lifelong romance reader, she found the perfect genre to write when she discovered inspirational romance. Narelle's contemporary stories of faith and romance are set in Australia.
Life can be hard when you live away from your family and don't know too many people. Sienna moved to Australia to put distance between her and her father, so she could feel independent. Unfortunately, work was difficult to find and soon her money got low. She was fortunate to be able to move in with her cousins, but that turned into a bit of a struggle. She finally got a job working at a school and found a wonderful church to attend. She also met a nice young man who worked at the school and went to her church. As they got to know each other, they soon found they had things they both needed to work on in their lives.
Dave was a young man who seemed to care about everyone he met. I loved seeing the way Dave cared for his grandma, and how he tenderly tried to help her deal with all the changes which were going on. It was sweet to see their relationship grow.
This story was enjoyable to read. There was sweet romance and lessons of acceptance for who you are in God's eyes.
Narelle Atkins is a wonderful author and writes from her heart.
I highly recommend picking up this book to read.
