About the Book
One Eternal City. Three women. Three wishes. Three coins.
American expatriates Emma, Tiffany and Annarita all meet up by chance at a 1950s movie night while on a restorative holiday at an Italian beach resort off-season. The triumphs and hardships of these three very different women become intertwined as they form an unlikely friendship and work to better their messy lives.

While desperately attempting to make sense of her dilemma, Janet treads a thin line between trying to blend into her new world and not being unmasked as the imposter she is.
