Masquerading as the not unusual fare of satisfying themes of love, second chances and a redeeming outcome, this book encompasses several big issues compellingly and arbitrarily which makes it an infinitely more riveting journey. On the run from a dubious and dangerous ex-partner in Brisbane, Lara Foxleigh tosses three gold euros into the Trevi Fountain in Rome…and shortly thereafter her life revolves on the twist of fate after she lends assistance to a lame and frail elderly man who has just been robbed and abandoned. Secrets of shared and similar guilt and grief despite two disparate cultures and home-countries thousands of miles apart, become their bond.
