I’m excited to share with you the setting for my upcoming release in A Tuscan Legacy contemporary Christian romance series.
My lovely co-authors have introduced you to the Rossi family in the following posts. Check out the links below (if you haven’t already read them) to learn more about our series.
A Tuscan Legacy is a truly international contemporary Christian romance series. It spans three continents and my story, Solo Tu (Book 7) is set in Sydney, Australia.
Today I thought I’d share a few of my photos and give you a snippet of the real life setting for Solo Tu.
This is Little Manly Beach – the harbor beach that’s close to where Sienna Rossi lives in a high rise apartment (owned by her cousins) with stunning water views. Dave, our Aussie hero in the story, lives up the road from Sienna with his grandmother in her early twentieth century federation-style home.
Sienna and Dave are both living in Manly for a season rather than long-term. This part of Sydney is prime real estate, and they’d struggle financially to pay the rent for an apartment on their school teacher salaries.
The photos above and below are from Manly Beach – the famous Sydney ocean beach that tourists catch a harbor ferry from the city to visit for a day trip. Sienna and Dave like walking together along Manly Beach and around to Shelly Beach. The photo below was taken from the path between Manly Beach and Shelly Beach (the path is pictured above in the photo). Who wouldn’t want to enjoy this walk? It’s a beautiful part of the world, and one of my favorite places to visit in Sydney.
A bit of trivia ~ I was born at Manly Hospital ~ only a short walk from where Sienna and Dave live during Solo Tu. There’s also another Inspy Romance author who was born at the same hospital. A big coincidence! Can you guess who?
Have you visited Sydney, Australia in real life or via books, movies? Do you recognise the Sydney beach in the title image photo? (Hint: It’s not Manly Beach)
