Sweet-sounding life, indeed!,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Bella Tuscany: The Sweet Life in Italy (Taschenbuch)
I enjoyed the continuing story of Frances Mayes' experience in Italy. After reading the author's first book, "Under the Tuscan Sun," I could not wait to read "Bella Tuscany." I was not disappointed. I enjoyed reading about Mayes' and her husband's life after the restoration of their new home in Italy -- their neighbors, their garden with the various plants and flowers, their olive trees, their travels within Italy, their meals, learning a new language, everything!
Mayes' narration was engaging and kept my attention till the very end of the book. I especially liked the ending where I envisioned Mayes as she walks the Etruscan hillside, on a late night, reaching out to catch a falling star. What a sweet ending.
I have not traveled to the part of Italy that Mayes writes about but I plan to do so in the future. I'd like to experience "Bella Tuscany" for myself.
Ms. Mayes, thank you for sharing your experience!
