Story notes:

A/N: Let me start off by saying that the majority of this story takes place on a tiny Italian island off the coast of Sardinia called La Maddalena. I lived in Italy for quite a few years while growing up and in La Maddalena for some of those years. There is no way my writing about this place could possibly do it any justice, and I apologize for that in advance. I do hope that this story feels realistic and maybe captures your imagination. If you'd like to see what La Maddalena is really like (and judge for yourself whether I've done it justice), check out this video I found on YouTube (not mine!).

Also, I don't speak a lick of Italian, so if anyone out there has a better grasp of the language, feel free to correct any mistakes I've made. Lastly, thanks so much to my beta, D, for all her help with this story. This has been a labor of love, and boy did I labor.

So. I did NOT intend to take this long to update what I considered to be a completed story!! And I am so, so, so sorry for the wait. Editing the ending turned into rewriting the ending, which turned into writer's block, and then obstacles in the form of multiple writing commitments, BUT FINALLY. It is here. The last chapter! I hope some of you have stuck around to see the end of this story, and I hope you like it! Reviews appreciated!
