About the Book
Since she was a child, Meg has dreamed of taking a promised trip to Florence and finally step into the place captured in a picture in her Italian grandmother's house. But after her grandmother passes away and it falls to her less-than-reliable father to take her instead, the long-anticipated journey seems permanently on hold.
When her dad finally tells her to book the trip and she travels to Florence to meet him, he is nowhere to be found. Meg is left on her own to learn the rich beauty of this ancient city, until she meets a local aspiring memoir-writer. When their stories intersect, their lives will be indeliby changed as they each answer the question: What if renaissance isn't just a word? What if that's what happens when you dare to believe that what is isn't what has to be?
