    The story begins in 1962. On a rocky patch of the sun-drenched Italian coastline, a young innkeeper, chest-deep in daydreams, looks out over the incandescent waters of the Ligurian Sea and spies an apparition: a tall, thin woman, a vision in white, approaching him on a boat. She is an actress, he soon learns, an American starlet, and she is dying. And the story begins again today, half a world away, when an elderly Italian man shows up on a movie studio's back lot - searching for the mysterious woman he last saw at his hotel decades earlier.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is an intricate novel that melds several different genres and a host of characters to create a truly engrossing read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Beautiful Ruins?

    I especially loved all the little side "genre" parts -- Pat's play, the Donner party pitch, the excerpts from Michael Dean's how to book -- all these added to the plot and really held my interest.


    Which character – as performed by Edoardo Ballerini – was your favorite?

    Pascale -- without a doubt. Loved the Italian accent and of course, the actual Italian!
    Perfection!
