Iris and lily book two
Iris & Lily: Book Two by Angela ScipioniIn Book Two, the demands of marriage come crashing down on Iris and Lily, now living thousands of miles apart, both determined to gain the love and approval of their husbands and acquired families. The fairy-tale life Iris imagined herself living in Italy is abruptly put into focus by her overprotective husband, the respected anesthesiologist Gregorio Leale. Dottor Leale does not take kindly to alternative viewpoints or challenges to his authority and is disturbed by displays of spontaneity and individualism, stifling Iris' budding sensuality and dampening her innate enthusiasm. Joe Diotallevi are even more daunting as she struggles to comprehend the peculiar dynamic of the close-knit Diotallevi tribe and its protectionist politics. Discouraged but not thwarted in their quests for personal development, in their desire to experience motherhood, in their dream of building a life with a man who will love and respect them, Iris and Lily silently stick to their choices despite moments of despair and temptation, shamed by their Catholic upbringing, paralyzed by their fear of failure and rejection, in the hope that a kinder destiny will reveal itself.

The cottage is nestled along winding Sea View Road, set back from the sandy street.
