"Ellinor is thirty-six. She wears soft black sweatpants and a Michelin Man jacket. She fights. Smart and unsentimental, she tries her hand at online dating, only to find herself stranded by a snowstorm with a literary critic. Cut to Max Lamas, author, who dreams of a polyglot lover, a woman who will understand him - in every tongue. His search takes him to Italy, where he befriends a marchesa whose old Roman family is on the brink of ruin. At the heart of this literary intrigue is a handwritten manuscript that leaves no one unaffected." -- Page 4 of cover.
