Katherine Reay's newest novel, A Portrait of Emily Price, transports readers to Italy where one woman will learn what it means to be truly free.

Emily Price, art restorer and would-be artist, finds herself in Atlanta, restoring objects recovered from a house fire. As she strives to make all the pieces of her life fit, she finds herself enthralled by Chef Benito Hillam, who is in town from Italy visiting his brother Joseph, Emily s boss. Ben spends his time working to restore his aunt and uncle s restaurant and wooing to Emily. When she surprises herself and accepts his marriage proposal, Emily follows Ben home to Italy.

Emily is transported into a new world, but instead of allowing Italy to change her, she tries to change Italy, alienating Ben s tight-knit Italian family in the process everyone, that is, except Ben s father, Henry. The elderly man takes Emily under his wing, and she begins to transform, growing wings as Italy s beauty begins to take hold of her spirit, and her art and life begin to blossom.

But when long-hidden family secrets are unearthed and past hurts become fresh again, Emily is left to wonder whether she really fits into Ben s world. Will the lessons of Italy become just a memory to Emily, or will she embrace the freedom and beauty that her life with Ben has shown her is possible?"

Heart-warming, tender, and poignant
5 stars By Katie Donovan, Nov 30 2016
This is the kind of novel for which you clear the calendar. Even if you don't aspire to sit down and read the book from start to finish in one sitting, take care of any potential distractions before you open its pages so that you can give yourself over totally to basking in the imagery, the ambiance, and the emotions of the story for however long you are able to indulge at one time. From the moment they whisper the same Italian word - 'Aiuto' (help) - it is as though Ben's and Emily's souls recognize one another and connect.  More than that, their hearts instinctively understand each other, and far from being cheesy or sappy or unrealistic, watching them totally melted my heart. But this novel is also realistic about the challenges they face as they begin their life together, and the way they handle those challenges is part of the beauty of this story. It's a richly layered novel, full of symbolism, beautiful subtext, and an exploration of the emotional significance behind Emily's professional and personal drive to fix things that are broken. But how do you find peace when things are beyond your ability to fix? Katherine Reay's writing captures the soul of Emily's journey with the skill of a master artist.  It is heart-warming, tender, and poignant. Open its pages, and allow yourself to feast.
