Daniela Delgado has spent her life avoiding her meddling grandfather’s overbearing influence, but when his deathbed request is that she visit Del Cuore, the small Italian town of his childhood, she agrees. His final words: “Unless you seek romance, avoid the stone stairway leading from the town square. Amore destinato!”Determined to do exactly that which her grandfather bade her not to do, Daniela arrives in Del Cuore and immediately seeks the stairs. They lead to a wild garden and Antonio Rossi, a landscape architect commissioned to restore its beauty.Daniela’s friendship with Antonio leads to romance. But then Daniela learns that before his death her grandfather hired Antonio to do the restoration. Now Daniela must decide if her relationship with Antonio is real, or just the orchestration of an interfering grandfather who, even beyond death, has the power to influence her life . . . and her heart.
