Beautiful Ruins, Jess Walters. A young innkeeper on the Italian coastline is encapsulated by a beautiful woman approaching on a boat. The story picks up 50 years later and half a world away as an elderly Italian man shows up on a movie studio's back lot searching for the mysterious woman he last saw at his hotel decades earlier. A wondrous love story that stretches over 2 continents and 50 years.
