There’s no better way to learn about people and yourself than by packing a suitcase and taking off to a faraway place.
In “Love on the Rocks: A Positano Tale,” Catie Costa tells the story of two best friends, Kit and Bridget, who flee their humdrum lives in the States to spend an adventurous summer in Positano, Italy.
The girls soon learn that no matter where you live, life is still full of drama. While missing luggage, humidity-wilted hair, delectable Nutella and lots of prosecco abound, their vacation is full of anticipatory romance spiked with a bit of heartache and self-discovery.
“Amazing things happen when you can get out of your own way and experience life for what it is,” Costa said.
Loosely based on one summer she and a friend rented an apartment in Positano, Costa’s novel emphasizes the importance of living life to its fullest and embracing the twists and turns along the way.
“Everybody’s journey through life is different,” Costa said. “Be who you are, go at your own pace, don’t compare yourself and enjoy the journey.”
