    In the vein of Eat, Pray, Love, but for teens, this inspirational novel is set against the backdrop of Tennessee horse country as well as the historic cities of Italy and the Italian countryside.

McDaniel subtly explores the many types of love the girls experience - including love for one's family, one's friends, and intimate love - and the sacrifices they choose to make (or not) for each of them.
