To all those who feel the internet connectivity has  stolen the thunder from good old romance, this book is a  reminder , a take on how true love survives all odds, yes even the big bad internet, in fact uses ht e net connectivity as  a  tool to further its cause and helps two lovers meet. Before you roll up your eyes and decide that this  book is another run-of-the-mill romance... take a pause and read through this review. The protagonist isn't some teeny bopper discovering the art of anonymity in handling multiple relationships through an online avatar, but she is an 87 year old who rekindles her love with her childhood sweet heart when she reconnects with him on Facebook. This octogenarian has dreams of love which are brought to life by her loving granddaughters.

These modern day girls,twelve women with big hearts and slim wallets want to do something special for their grandmother. At eighty-seven, the family matriarch has reconnected with her childhood sweetheart, and wants to elope to Sicily. The catch is her intended is poor, and Nona D'Amato doesn't have the travel cash herself.

When they put their heads together, can her twelve granddaughters help their Nona achieve her dream? All it takes is a little ingenuity and a very clever plan. Meet Emma, Claire, Angie, Haley, Bev, Jane, Tiny, Zoe, Lena, Trish, Susan and Rachel, as they embark on the adventure of a lifetime--all in the name of l'amore.

Now, let me also say that this book may not be for everyone. This is a very different romance. It deviates from the typical, stereotyped chick lit where boy meets girl, they have a conflict, conflict resolved, boy gets girl. This book will appeal to someone who desires a deeper level romance. There's no sex, no bad language, but the romance is tangible.Clever, surprising, irresistible, sweet read!!! This book will appeal to all. There is a mixture of family and personal values spiced with humorous situations. Enjoy the read fro a stress free romantic story that leaves its readers with optimism and hope.
