Praise

“Tuscany may have found its own bard in Frances Mayes.”The 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.”The 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
