Reviews

"Tuscany may have found its own bard in Frances Mayes."
--New York Times

"Irresistable...A senuous book for a sensuous countryside."
--Minneapolis Star-Tribune

"An intense celebration of what she calls 'the voluptuousness of Italian life'... Appealing and very vivid... [The] book seems like the kind of thing you'd tuck into a picnic basket on an August day... or better yet, keep handy on the bedside table in the depths of January."
--New York Times Book Review

"A love letter to Italy written in precise and passionate language of near-poetic density... Maye's sequel offers something different, even richer and more complex, than her first account of life in Tuscany... This is a book to treasure, as the author so clearly treasures the life she engraves on our hearts."
--Newsday

"Frances Mayes is, before all else, a wonderful writer... She never loses sight of the fact that millenniums-old Tuscany, with its immemorial customs and folksways, is not to be domesticated or made familiar. Her Italy remains intransigently foreign, exotic, a continuing revelation of strangeness and unexpected beauties."
--Chicago Tribune
