NEW BOOKS: Australian author Josephine Moon's Three Gold Coins starts tantalisingly with one coin for love, one for marriage, one to return to Rome

THREE Gold Coins is a deliciously complex non-fiction novel of families, food, adversity, hope and love.

The coins are for love, for marriage and to return to Rome.

Two days ago, Lara Foxleigh tossed three gold euros into the Trevi Fountain. Now, she is caring for a cranky old man and living in a picturesque villa, ...half a world away from her home and the concerns of her loving family, but cloying family.

Soon, it seems as if those wishes she made in Rome just might be coming true, and she may even be able to help heal a fifteen-year-old tragedy - until Lara's past threatens to destroy everything she loves . . .

Three Gold Coins is a masterfully written celebration of food, family, triumph over adversity, love . . . and a deliciously imperfect life.

Australian author Josephine Moon wrote The Tea Chest, The Chocolate Promise and The Beekeeper's Secret.

Published by Allen and Unwin, Three Gold Coins is available from bookshops. RRP $29.99.
