Violetta has a sixth sense when it comes to love, which is why she is ‘spiritual leader’ of The Secret League of Widowed Darners, an all-but invisible army of ancient Italian widows who spend their time mending broken hearts in a hilltop town in Tuscany. Then Lily Turner arrives fresh from the boardrooms of Manhattan. She’s just found out that her perfect husband has been having the children she could never have right there in Montevedova, with someone else, so she’s come to find him and chop him into tiny pieces. With this Violetta’s sixth sense disappears, the perfect husband goes underground, a handsome Italian rides in on a white charger, Lily’s heart breaks yet again and in skips Francesca, a troubled six-year-old who just wants to make cantucci. Suddenly, happiness is only a cookie-cutter away.
