Product Description

From New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Ginny Baird, a heartwarming story about the power of love, the dedication of family, and the realization of dreams.

Ginny Baird's The Calendar Brides
Twelve granddaughters share one goal, all in the name of love.

Twelve women with big hearts and slim wallets want to do something special for their grandmother. At eighty-seven, the family matriarch has reconnected with her childhood sweetheart, and wants to elope to Sicily. The catch is her intended is poor, and Nona D'Amato doesn't have the travel cash herself.

When they put their heads together, can her twelve granddaughters help their Nona achieve her dream? All it takes is a little ingenuity and a very clever plan. Meet Emma, Claire, Angie, Haley, Bev, Jane, Tiny, Zoe, Lena, Trish, Susan and Rachel, as they embark on the adventure of a lifetime--all in the name of l'amore.

Meet the D'Amato women and their men!

Emma is the oldest and a smart mouth. She loves late-night pizza, her puppy, and Donny--whom she hated in high school.

Emma's sweet sister Claire reports the weather and collects seashells. Brainy Brad helps her see stars.

Stay-at-home mom Angie pretends to Zumba. Hot hubby Jason doesn't miss a step.

Angie's athletic twin Haley is a baker on the move. Mountain biker Peter grooves with her.

World traveler Bev craves adventure. Photojournalist Will has a passport, too.

Jane is a serious-minded thinker. Dry-witted Richard makes her laugh--and sigh.

Feisty Tiny has loved Jimmy for decades. Now, they're building a future together.

Tiny's artist sister Zoe has a secret wish. Does sexy Dillon share it?

Bev's sister Lena sings for her supper. Unconventional Ryan digs her act.

Only child Trish speaks her mind. Laid-back Leo knows how to listen.

Jane's shy sister Susan is a lonely knitter... Then handsome Kyle smiles her way.

Rachel is the baby and a dreamer. Kindly, older Tom wants to give her the moon.

Lucia vowed to marry Luigi at fourteen. He still waits for her in Italy. It's never too late for love!

Come join them all in this lively, romantic tale, just in time for the New Year!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Finds a Way 5 January 2015

Nona loves her granddaughters and has helped them in so many ways. Now they have a chance to give back. Nona has reconnected with Luigi. He was her first love. Now they have reconnected on Facebook and she wants to go to Sicily to be with him. Her granddaughters decide to raise the money for her trip. They come up with the idea to have each of them be photographed in a wedding gown. It's perfect! There are twelve women and twelve months. I loved Calendar Brides. The storyline is entertaining and innovative. I got a glimpse into each of their love lives. As an added bonus there was Nona's love story as the centerpiece. All the characters are well written. Each has their own distinct personality. I was charmed by these vignettes. All the stories fit together perfectly to create a feel good romance that left me smiling. Ginny Baird wrote witty and romantic dialogue that added to the mood. I was rooting for them to succeed. Nona deserved to be happy. It's so nice to see an older person who is living life to the fullest. I couldn't put this book down. It satisfied my soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love This Latest Book by Ginny Baird!!! 3 January 2015

What's not to love about a family that wants what's best for the family matriarch? 12 granddaughters concoct a scheme to get their grandmother to Sicily to reunite and marry the long-lost love of her life. I'm a huge fan of Ginny Baird's work, and must say that this latest book is my favorite so far! I laughed during the telling of the granddaughter's stories, and even teared up during some of them. I highly recommend this book if you're a fan of romance, long-lost love, or just want a feel-good book to curl up with and enjoy.

I absolutely loved this story! I have read quite a few books by Ginny Baird and enjoyed each one of them, but this one is my favorite so far. The personalities of all of the characters are so wonderful that you can’t help but find something you like in each person. I laughed, and I cried because the relationship that the granddaughters have with their grandmother is so beautiful that you will find your heart swelling with love for every one of them. I really didn’t want to see this book come to an end. I’m looking forward to see what’s next from Ms. Baird.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
