Overworked and overtire, a busy career woman is offered a second chance. When her doctor orders complete rest, an invitation to Tuscany leads to her quitting her job, a new start in Pisa, a passionate affair - and the opening of a whole new chapter in her life.
Like so many women, Sure Howard was an expert at juggling a growing tower of work with a shrinking slice of personal life until she's forced to take stock. Then when she is invited to share a house in Italy, Sue decides on impulse to quit her job for good and strike out afresh. It's a big decision. There's family, children and a relationship to consider, but the lure of the great unknown proves too strong.
Landing in Pisa, she slowly but surely falls in love with a wolrd where people know how to really live, where work is work and life is life, to be embraced with gusto everyday.
