About the Book

Book Description Fly Me to Brazil is a contemporary novel. What could be more now than a romance kindled on the Internet, blossoming while, at the same time, discovering the mysteries of the emerging country of Brazil – the same Brazil that will host both World Cup Soccer in 2014 and the Olympics in 2016. Scott, a single adult from California, is contacted by a woman from Brazil while perusing an Internet matching site. He couldn’t imagine why someone from such a distant place would be remotely interested in him. Out of curiosity, he began a cautious, long distance conversation. She told him her name was Juliana. Beyond that she was a woman of mystery – exciting, but unknown. Over many months of online conversations a relationship began to blossom. He decides to visit Juliana in her home country and see just who this woman from another land is. Three trips over two years expose Scott to a Brazil rich in culture. During his time there he finds Juliana to be a very special woman. With each trip back to that tropical land he finds himself drawn nearer to her. Come along with Scott and Juliana as they travel through Brazil visiting towns with strange sounding names. Discover something about Brazil’s rich immigration history and life in today’s emerging middle class. Follow along as Scott and Juliana’s relationship evolves and find out to what end.
