The Two of Us Like a NovelAuthor: Paola Calvetti
A “sophisticated romantic comedy” about the endless possibilities of love at every age. Emma is not yet 50 when Federico walks back into her life, 35 years after their first kiss. She owns an independent bookstore in Milan, and Federico, an architect, lives in New York with his estranged wife and teenage daughter. Seeing each other after more than three decades apart rekindles their feelings for one another, and they begin a long-distance relationship. Once a year, they meet in Belle-Ile, a small island off the coast of Brittany where a Celtic legend foreshadowed their affair. Books, letters, and the Morgan Library’s rich history play a large role in their romance.
