Description

Accidentally buying a derelict 22-room villa in the Italian countryside? What could possibly go wrong?

When Rosie Meleady's landlord doubles her rent in cold, wet, overprice Ireland, she packs up her family, her two dogs, and all her possessions into a camper van and sets off across Europe to sunny Italy, where she plans to grow her destination wedding planning business. But it's not all sunshine and gelato, as Rosie and her family soon find out.

Between a hurricane, a global pandemic, and accidentally buying a massive villa—that has definitely seen better days—in the Italian countryside, from eight cousins in the middle of a long-standing family dispute, Rosie pulls back the curtains on the less glamorous side of moving abroad, including navigating the complex layers and utter ridiculousness of buying a home in Italy; the tribulations of the COVID pandemic, which forced them to shutter their booming wedding planning business, taking their income down to zero; and the difficulty of integrating into a completely new country, culture, and language while nearly everything is shut down.

Lighthearted, uplifting, and utterly escapist, A Rosie Life in Italy is HGTV meets Under the Tuscan Sun—a delightful peek under the covers of what it's like to throw caution to the wind, take a risk, and build a life you once only dreamed of.

I don't often read non fiction books but this one really called to me, especially due to the time period and the heartbreak and truth behind it but it show's the chances are worth taking.
