~ My Thoughts ~

That Month In Tuscany is a story of family, the loss of ones self, the grief of losing a loved one and the reality, that all appears to be true sometimes isn’t.

A story based around a husband and wife who after twenty years of marriage realize that within those years, one sacrificed herself, her dreams and her desires, while the other feels entitled to live a life that brings fulfillment. In between this husband and wife is their daughter. Tough teenage years, misguided admiration and a twist you don’t see coming, the daughter plays an integral part of the story. The growth of all three of these characters is really what the heart of this story centers upon.

That growth though wouldn’t be possible without the additional of Ren a famous rock star who is dealing with the desire to just disappear and end the never ending grief he carries is his heart.

A chance meeting, a country full of possibilities, an event that will blindside you and the hopes of healing the past are That Month in Tuscany.

A fast paced, easy to read story of family, grief and the possibility of redefining who you are, what you want and achieving happiness, peace, tranquility and love.

Virginia author Inglath Cooper fell in love with reading as a little girl, devouring most of the books in her elementary school library. At some point, she decided she wanted to pursue a writing career, creating romance fiction that did for others what her favorite books have done for her. “I love character-driven books that leave me feeling as if I’ve really known these people and make me wish I didn’t have to turn the last page.”

“Romance fiction has always appealed to me because it deals with so many of the relationships in a woman’s life. Not only the love of her life, but often her relationship with her mother, sister or best friend. Romance authors have so much room to explore many of the meaningful moments and transitions in women’s lives. And who doesn’t love a good love story?”

Inglath most often writes stories about love and life that are set in small Virginia towns like the one where she grew up. “I like to think the flavor of my hometown shows up in my books both in their setting and through the characters who people it.”

When aspiring writers ask her how to be an author, she says, “Everything I know about writing books I learned from reading books.”

Inglath has been chosen as a RITA® Award winner for best long contemporary romance novel given out each year by Romance Writers of America. Her books are available through,,, and

Outside of writing, Inglath is actively involved in dog rescue, working with The Franklin County Humane Society to place dogs and cats in need of rehoming. She volunteers her time in every capacity possible: serving on the Board of Directors, fundraising, photographing dogs and cats available for adoption and serving as a foster home. “Helping an abused or neglected dog go on to have a wonderful life with a family who loves them is more rewarding than I can possibly say.”
