Pg. 69: Malena Lott's "Dating da Vinci"

The current feature at the Page 69 Test: Dating da Vinci by Malena Lott.

About the book, from the author's website:
I wrote the story of Ramona Elise Griffen (Mona Lisa) because so many women can relate to a time in your life when you need a renaissance - an awakening. For Ramona, 36, a widowed mother of two, she’s been living life as a Griever for two years, since the unexpected death of her husband to a heart attack two years prior. She’s put her life on hold, but is ready, slowly, to find who she is now and what she should do next. As an English teacher to immigrants, she meets Leonardo da Vinci, a striking twenty-five year old Italian who shares a lot of characteristics with the real da Vinci. She gives him a place to stay in her husband’s garage studio, while he shows her so much more. The story is one of soul mates and second chances and finding joy after tragedy. I hope you’ll enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
