A surprise phone call from her late fiance’s family sends Vivien Lowry of Bloomsbury Girls off on her next adventure. Struggling as a playwright, she moves to Italy both to reckon with her past and create a new future as a script-writer at the Cinecittà Studios in Rome. Here she encounters the greatest male bastion of them all, the Vatican. Vivien ends up entangled between the church and the censors, while romantically caught between two men: an enigmatic American film financier who is not who he says he is, and a socialist Italian prince and independent filmmaker who ends up under house arrest over a censored screenplay.  Each of them has a wartime experience from their past that they must revisit in order to move on – Vivien most of all.


‘Every Time We Say Good Bye is a heartbreaking, engrossing, and thoroughly dazzling work of art that would make the filmmakers at the centre of its story proud.’ – Nina de Gramont, author of The Christie Affair 


‘A stunning novel about the impossible choices we make. Wise and wonderful, this is Jenner’s best!’ – Meg Waite Clayton, author of The Last Train to London


‘Natalie Jenner is at her historical fiction best with Every Time We Say Goodbye. This propulsive page-turner set in 1950s Rome has all the juicy elements readers will devour: art, passion, love, loss, history, and sacrifice.’ – Lisa Barr, author of Woman on Fire


‘Jenner provides an insightful view into Italy’s postwar reckoning with authentic flair. Jenner’s fans will love this.’ – Publishers Weekly
