Staff Reviews

Sarah-Kate Lynch has long been a favorite of mine- all of her books make you want to travel, and make you want to eat! Dolci di Love is no exception.  Lily, a hotshot exec in NYC, finds in her husband’s golf shoe a picture of him with a whole other family – an Italian one!  She hops a plane to a remote hill town, where the Secret League of Widowed Darners – the 90-something widows who all wear black and gather to solve the world’s woes, are pulling the strings on everyone’s lives. Delightful! Italy, gelato, love…

— Jill


New from the author of House of Daughters- an irresistible confection of love, loss, and Italian sweets in the delectable tradition of Chocolat

Corporate star Lily Turner abandons the boardrooms of Manhattan for the steep streets of Montevedova when she discovers her "perfect" husband, Daniel, has another family tucked away in the hills of Tuscany. Once there, her plight attracts the attention of the Secret League of Widowed Darners, an all-but-invisible army pulling strings behind the scenes to create happy endings. Soon founding members, Violetta and Luciana, are scheming to mend Lily's broken heart-and to enlist her help for their struggling pasticceria.

With the lush landscape of a sumptuous Tuscan summer in the background, and the tantalizing scent of fresh-baked cantucci in the air, Dolci di Love is the joyful celebration of a modern recipe for life.
