Divorced, alone, and unexpectedly unemployed, Sylvia Landsman flees to Italy, where she meets Henry, a wistful, married, middle-aged expatriate. Taking off on a grand tour of Europe bankrolled with his wife's money, Henry and Sylvia follow a circuitous route around the continent - as Sylvia entertains Henry with stories of her peculiar family and her damaged friends, of dead ducks and Alma Mahler. Her narrative is a tapestry of remembrances and regrets... and her secret shame: a small, cowardly sin of omission. Yet when the opportunity arises for Sylvia and Henry to do something small but brave, the refrain if only returns to haunt her, leaving Sylvia with one more story of love lived and lost.

    " A very casual, fun, easy read, perfect for poolside. It's like having a conversation with a girlfriend, and it makes you want to take a roadtrip. "

    " This might just be my favorite book for 2009. It's a cautionary tale about love not chosen and friendship lost. That sounds depressing and trite but the writing is excellent and a joy to read. "

    " While I found this book a bit on the depressing side, I enjoyed it. I like the way the author writes and I found it to be an interesting read. I will definitely try another of her books. "
