Since spring and summer is right around the corner and the weather being warmer made me want to read more some love stories. Love, Lucy is a great example of a love story. April Lindner introduces to Lucy Sommersworth, a girl who has spent most of her struggling with her own desires to pursue acting, and her father's wish for her to have a more practical career (e.g. business). As a compromise to her father, Lucy agrees to follow in his footsteps, in exchange for a trip to Italy. But it's on that trip to Italy, that Lucy meets Jesse and begins to realize that life isn't what she expected. After she returns home, she quickly finds that her summer romance is continuing to influence her life.
Italy is the place to experience the streets, the people, the food, and the culture and one thing I could relate to Lucy is the need to get lost in a foreign country. I love just going where the path takes you, especially when traveling to foreign counties. It really is a serene and beautiful as Lucy described it. I truly felt how realistic the experience was for Lucy, it was like April Lindner actually experienced it herself and went through the same emotions as she did, and I love this authenticity in writing. *JK*
