What happens when you decide to make a dream come true?
Newly retired and looking for more than a vacation, John and Nancy Petralia intrepidly pack up a few suitcases and head to the “perfect” Italian city for a year. Within days their dream becomes a nightmare. After residing in two Italian cities, negotiating the roads and health care, discovering art, friends, food and customs, the Petralias learn more than they anticipated--about Italy, themselves, what it means to be American, and what’s important in life.
Part memoir, part commentary, quirky and sincere, Not in a Tuscan Villa is about having the courage to step out of your comfort zone and do something challenging in later life. The adventure recaptures the Petralias’ youth, rekindles their romance--and changes their lives forever.
“If you can’t go in Italy, you’ll be glad the Petralias did.”
