Editors Select, August 2017
I listened to this early in the summer as preparation for my own trip to the Eternal City. This was a romantic listen in the most classic sense of the word; it’s a book that leaves you feeling hopeful and completely content with how you just spent your time. Narrated by the city itself, One Summer Day in Rome follows three duos - each at very different stages in their lives - and their adventures, mishaps, heartaches, and heart-brimming moments in what is truly my favorite city in the world. —Katie, Audible Editor
"New York, Paris, London - every grand metropolis - has its own irresistible attraction, but Rome so swirls with stories of saints and sinners...lovers and fighters, that she compels you towards her, like gravity.... No one leaves her unaltered. Part of you always loves her. This is the place where passions are aroused, senses inflamed, and lovers fall into each other's arms. It all appears to unfold like magic, but I will tell you what really happens.... Come with me, if you will, and observe my labors."
Mark Lamprell's One Summer Day in Rome is an enchanting audiobook about three couples drawn irresistibly to Rome, narrated by the city itself. Alice, an art student in New York City, has come to Rome in search of adventure and inspiration before settling down with her steady, safe fiancé. Meg and Alec, busy parents and successful businesspeople from LA, are on a mission to find the holy grail, a certain blue tile that will make their home renovation complete - but soon it becomes clear that their marriage needs a makeover as well. Connie and Lizzie are women of a certain age - "Sometimes I look at my laughter lines and wonder what on earth could have been that funny" - who come from London to scatter the ashes of their beloved husband and brother. Both women are seemingly done with romance, but Rome has other ideas.
Brimming with wit and charm (and gelato), One Summer Day in Rome is the most delicious audiobook you will listen to this summer.
