Julie And Romeo

'For never was a story of more woe, than this of Juliet and her Romeo.' Shakespeare might have seen his young star-cross'd lovers as a tragic pair, but 400 years later Jeanne Ray's Julie and Romeo are light-hearted, funny and sixty-something. Julie Roseman, a divorcee, and Romeo Cacciamani, a widower, own rival flower shops in Boston. They don't know what started the family feud generations before, but they have never questioned it. Until the fateful day when they meet at a business conference and inexplicably find themselves falling in love. But the path of true love never did run smooth, and with Romeo's feisty mother and a pack of fierce children coming between them, it looks like Julie and Romeo's tale will not end happily - or will it?
