Hepburn’s Necklace

A Dual Timeline Saga from the Film Set of Roman Holiday to Lake Como, Italy: Historical 20th Century Novels

About the Book

From Jan Moran, a USA Today bestselling author of romantic women’s fiction, comes a dual timeline saga of love and second chances.

A vintage necklace. A long-hidden secret. A second chance for love.

When costume designer Ariana Ricci leaves her groom at the altar, she seeks solace with her great-aunt, a Texas-born Hollywood legend who worked on the film Roman Holiday as an extra. There, Ariana discovers Audrey Hepburn gave Ruby Raines an intriguing necklace during filming, and a cache of 1950s letters, postmarked Italy, raises more questions about Ruby’s hidden past.

Aching for a fresh start and the chance to resolve an unfinished story, the two embark on a journey to the sun-dappled shores of Lake Como, Italy that will illuminate secrets of a bygone era and offer second chances to each of them—if they are bold enough to seize them.

“Second chances, twists of fate and a glittering Lake Como backdrop combine to create Jan Moran’s latest stunning read. Weaving back and forth through time, Moran creates an epic tale of love and loss that can’t help but make readers question what might have been. With lyrical prose and unforgettable characters, HEPBURN’S NECKLACE proves that Jan Moran is a writer at the top of her game and a storyteller to remember.

— Kristy Woodson Harvey, USA Today Bestselling author of Feels Like Falling

“An ode to the magic of Lake Como past and present, Hepburn’s Necklace sails between the set of Roman Holiday in 1952, and two complicated romances that blossom on the beautiful lake across two different generations. As sparkling as a Bellini, this novel of family secrets, lost love, and discovering one’s strength will transport you to Italy and leave you enchanted.”

— Kristin Harmel, New York Times Bestselling author of The Book of Lost Names

“Jan Moran is the new queen of the epic romance.”
