Our Italian Summer

Jennifer Probst has written a story involving three generations of women within a family. Francesca is a successful head of an ad agency, but work is her life. Her daughter, Allegra, resents her mom’s complete focus on her career, since she is not around all that much. So the burden falls on Allegra’s grandmother, Sophia, to pick up the slack. But Sophia plans a summer vacation for the three of them, a month in Italy, after Allegra gets caught smoking pot with friends. The novel switches between all three character’s point of view, which keeps the reader engaged. A nice “feel-good” story if you are looking for one.
