In a moment everything can change, a person’s life can be completely turned upside down and the path they are on changes forever. In that moment when Lianne’s Mam loses her battle with Motor Neurone Disease, Lianne knows her life will never be the same.It never bothered her that she had grown up without a Dad, she had her Mam and didn’t need anyone else. She had never even really asked who her Dad was or tried to find out; she had never felt the need to know. But now she felt she was an orphan - no Mam, no Dad and no siblings.As she adjusts to a life without her Mam, she learns of her mother’s love for a boy she met on holiday in Italy and her own Italian heritage. And so armed with a few scraps of information, Lianne heads to Tuscany, the land of her ancestors, to see whether she can find her father. Along the way, she discovers the beauty and warmth of the Tuscan countryside and also finds unexpected love.

SJ Owens is a retired civil servant who lives in Cardiff; she’s married with four children, eight grandchildren, and two crazy Springer Spaniels.


SJ always felt she had book “inside her” and believes that you should write about what you know, so her first novel draws on her family’s Italian heritage.
