Six Days in Rome - Francesca Giacco
A young artist travels to Rome to heal a broken heart in this visceral, decadent and deeply evocative debut novel.
Emilia, an artist, arrives in Rome alone. What was supposed to be a romantic trip has, with the sudden end of her relationship, become a solitary one.
Six days lie ahead. She wanders the streets, surrendering herself to the music, food and beauty of the city.
But when she meets John, an American living out a seemingly idyllic existence in Rome, their instant connection challenges how she sees her past, her family and herself. As their intimacy deepens, can Emilia begin to imagine life anew?
Visceral, decadent and deeply evocative, Six Days in Rome is a novel about reckoning with complex pasts and choices made - and finding what you didn't know you were looking for.
