Forever Florence! A Memoir

At the suggestion of the Author’s Guild, I have updated my memoir of Florence and re-titled the book:
Susan Kelley writes a hilarious memoir of one couple’s sixteen-year romp living, working, and playing in Florence, the artistic treasure house of the Western world. In delightful and always-surprising chapters, she relates the compelling adventures of a writer and artist finding their true path in life while encountering a cast of unforgettable characters, ranging from the endearing residents of Florence to a consecrated nun, Italian royalty, and a legendary rock star. She and her husband have lived what many people would consider a dream. What differentiates this from other books is they embarked on this magnificent journey as a couple.

Is the relationship what you thought it would be?
