The Florence Legacy
by Lauraine Snelling
In this novel filled with friendship, grief, and travel gone awry, three friends take
their dream trip to Florence, Italy in memory of a beloved woman who has passed away.
As the last will of a close friend is read, three women discover that they have inherited
a legacy from her: the funds to take a dream trip to Florence, Italy, in her memory. With plenty of hilarious travel mishaps along the way, this book is a story of deep friendship,
of making room in our lives to celebrate and remember, of grief, of the realization that friendship keeps the memory alive, and the sweet discovery of unexpected romance.
About The Author
Shown in her contemporary women’s fiction, a hallmark of Laraine’s style is writing
about real issues of forgiveness, loss, domestic violence, and cancer within a compelling
story. Her work has been translated into Norwegian, Danish, and German. She has won
the Romantic Times Career Achievement Award for Inspirational Fiction, the Silver Angel Award for An Untamed Land and a Romance Writers of America Golden Heart for Song
of Laughter. In 2012 due to her Norwegian Heritage and the many novels she has
written about Norwegians immigrating to America, Lauraine was inducted into
the Scandinavian-American Hall of Fame.
As a sought-after speaker, Lauraine encourages others to find their gifts and live their
lives with humor and joy. Her readers often clamor for more books, and Lauraine would
like to comply ... if only her paintbrushes and fragrant flowers didn’t call quite so loudly.
Lauraine and her husband, Wayne, have two grown sons and a daughter in Heaven.
They live in the Tehachapi Mountains with Lapcat, and “The Girls” (three golden hens)..
