You, Me and Sicily
Released: March 2022
Between the Lines is the correspondence between best friends Anne and Sue, who were separated in 1989 when Sue and her family moved to Sicily, Italy. As wives and mothers of young children, the two women wrote each other letters specifically for an audience of one. The correspondence is a rich account of Sue and her family adjusting to life in Sicily, while Anne and her family navigate life in their small southern hometown on the other side of the globe. Both women share the highs and lows of raising children and finding their own identities while keeping the home fires burning. These letters reveal the importance of the human connection, the need to be understood, and the meaning of true friendship.
