About the Author

Lisa Shea is fascinated by how, from an early age, we are subtly trained in the traditions of courtship. Fairy tales involved red roses as a sign of love. White clothing represents innocence, while green is the color of health. Every culture has its own traditions in the meaning of flowers, the significance of months, and the legends which grow around locations and people. Lisa combined her interest in these romantic traditions with her love of travel and culture. She embarked on numerou trips to lands steeped in history -- the green hills of Ireland, the flowered gardens of France, the beautiful coastlines of Italy. She walked the hexagonal steps of the Giant's caueway, gazed at the serenity of the Seine river, and marveled at the singing gondoliers of Venice. She absorbed the natural beauty of these locations and talked frequently with the locals about their lore and traditions. Lisa'a love of literature immersed her in centuries of traditional tales from each land, revealing a wealth of courtship and romance lore. For a more modern take, she also watched hundreds of movies set in the locations to stay up to date with current practices. Share in Lisa's enthusiasm for all things romantic. Whether you are planning your very first date, or are seeking ways to revitalize a long-term relationship, there is a wealth of knowledge waiting here for you!

4 of 8 people found the following review helpful By J. Zolli on January 26, 2007
Format: Paperback
Someday, I'll go to Italy. I'll drift down the canals of Venice, stand at the foot of the Coliseum, wonder at the Tower of Pisa. Until then, though, this book will help me enjoy the best of Italian culture and romance and bring it into my home. I married an Italian gentleman, and know that there is nothing like the riveting magnetism of the unadorned gaze of an Italian in love. If you want to sweep someone off their feet Italian style, the recipe is in this book.

Steeped in history and tradition, Italy has been described as a piece of heaven on earth. From the history of famous Italian loves, to recipes for some of the finest food and drink found anywhere, to the traditions of courting, proposing, and marrying, this book touches on all things Amore'.
