To the world, Samantha has the perfect life. Three wonderful children, a loving husband, and a life split between Dallas and Italy. When her youngest leaves for college, it all comes crashing down, forcing her to reexamine exactly what she wants from her world.

Emboldened and ready to take control of her future, Samantha heads to Italy to meet her husband, Michael, prepared to leave the last twenty-five years of her life behind. Michael, she soon discovers, has secrets and an agenda of his own that could change their lives forever. Life has had its way with them and nothing is quite what they’d imagined it to be.

Over seven days in one of the most romantic countries in the world she’s forced to face the past she thought she’d overcome, and redefine her role as a woman, a wife and a mother.
