It Happened in Florence

"I live here! This is my life!"

Nita Tucker's four years in Florence are a lesson about how staying true to your dreams is really the only option. As editor-in-chief of The Florentine, Nita's days in Florence were packed with interviewing politicians, princesses, designers, and celebrities, as well as accepting once in a lifetime invitations to events such as a wild boar hunt on the Ferragamo country estate and a private viewing of the Sistine Chapel. 

In between, Nita laughed and cried with her girlfriends over family, fashion, cultural differences and making a difference in their beloved Florence. With the many highs came a few inevitable lows, including Nita's realization that it was her dream to live in Europe and not her husband's or daughter's. 

It Happened in Florence is a story about living a life with no regrets, celebrating the discovery that those who love you most will love you all the more for living a life without compromise.
