Hmm…lots to think about.  Okay, here’s a book I am eagerly awaiting…and haven’t found a review copy anywhere.  Siracusa, by Delia Ephron.  I am a big fan of the Ephron sisters, so this one I’m drooling over.

Synopsis:  An electrifying novel about marriage and deceit from bestselling author Delia Ephron that follows two couples on vacation in Siracusa, a town on the coast of Sicily, where the secrets they have hidden from each other are exposed and relationships are unraveled. 

New Yorkers Michael, a famous writer, and Lizzie, a journalist, travel to Italy with their friends from Maine—Finn, his wife Taylor, and their daughter Snow. “From the beginning,” says Taylor, “it was a conspiracy for Lizzie and Finn to be together.” Told Rashomon-style in alternating points of view, the characters expose and stumble upon lies and infidelities past and present.  Snow, ten years old and precociously drawn into a far more adult drama, becomes the catalyst for catastrophe as the novel explores collusion and betrayal in marriage. With her inimitable psychological astuteness, and uncanny understanding of the human heart, Ephron delivers a powerful meditation on marriage, friendship, and the meaning of travel. Set on the sun-drenched coast of the Ionian Sea, Siracusa unfolds with the pacing of a psychological thriller and delivers an unexpected final act that none can see coming.

    • Oh, I am envious about BEA….it is gradually working its way back to the West Coast, but it’s too slow! I went in 2008 when it was in LA…and I didn’t know how to work it back then. I want another chance! LOL. Thanks for stopping by, Catherine.
