Manufacturer Description

Exhausted by complaints from her editor, disapproval from her parents and a general disgust with her dull life, twenty-something journalist Kathleen Collins knows she needs to get away – now. Determined to make this sabbatical count, Kathleen embarks on a solo trip to Italy, but it doesn’t stay solo for long. Despite her best efforts to remain autonomous and reconnect with herself, Kathleen’s new friends draw her out of her self-imposed solitude.
But the unexpected arrival of a handsome acquaintance rocks Kathleen’s carefully ordered little world. In an effort to maintain control of her life, Kathleen clings desperately to the belief that she must remain independent. It takes a surprising and intense weekend trip to Rome for Kathleen to realize what she truly needs.
From the dark romanticism of a basement jazz club to the rolling green hills of the Tuscan countryside, Kathleen is thrown into a journey she never planned to take. And when the journey takes a turn for the worst, only the arrival of two more surprise visitors can help Kathleen realize her own strength – and prepare her for what she truly wanted all along.

Product Information


Meet Emily Payne

I was born and, for the most part, raised in North Carolina. I have always loved reading and writing, and I studied journalism and mass communication and creative writing at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Upon graduation in 2006, I moved to Greenville, S.C., and have been here ever since. I currently work as a client representative at a wealth management firm. 

As a child, I often wrote little stories, but the idea of being an author did not come about until the summer I was 13. My parents were busy working and building our house, and I stayed with my grandparents for days on end. That was just on the cusp of the young adult genre becoming popular – there was no Harry Potter, no Twilight, no Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants yet, and I quickly ran out of things to read that summer. Finally, in frustration, I thought that if I couldn’t find a good book to read, I’d just write one myself. I did write a “book” that summer – it was 24 pages long, and I was so proud of myself. And the dream of being an author has stuck with me ever since. Over the years it has taken a backseat to more pressing matters such as school and jobs, but it’s always been there. 

Aside from reading and writing, I love to travel, which is lucky since seeing new places frequently provides inspiration for my writing. I also enjoy trying new foods and wines. In my spare time, I do yoga, crochet and spend time with my friends and family.
