THE ROME APARTMENT The Italian Escape, Book 1

by | Read by Emma Spurgin Hussey

Fiction • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Narrator Emma Spurgin Hussey performs the first in the Italian Escape series in which 50-year-old somewhat insecure Beth finds herself in Rome after her daughter leaves for uni and her husband takes a temporary job in Paris. During her six-week stay in a Rome apartment, the owner, British expat Ronnie, and feisty Irish-born tenant Marina challenge her to renew her life. Hussey portrays septuagenarian Ronnie as cranky and vibrant in sharp contrast to soft-spoken Beth as she explores the Eternal City's hidden art, carved doors, and other majestic sights old and new. Hussey's smooth tones capture descriptions of mouth-watering food and revitalizing sunshine, along with Beth's rediscovery of what she loves in life.
