Read the inspiration for the Netflix original series Summertime, a "deep, passionate romance that transcends time and age" (Booklist).
Babi and Step are the Romeo and Juliet of their time, spending the best days of their lives together in the Eternal City, but belonging to opposite worlds may eventually tear them apart.
It begins with a chance meeting at a traffic light, one that draws a young womans attention to the stranger on a motorbike. In that one moment, the fates of Babi Gervasi and Step Mancini are altered. Babi, poised on the brink of a predictable future, will risk everything to be with Step. Step, running from his past, will find the one thing missing from his life. Sharing days on the streets of Rome and nights under a blanket of stars, they belong in each others arms.
Even as they fear their time together will be brief, they know their hearts will remember forever.
