really liked it
bookshelves: italy, memoir-biography
Read from December 11 to 16, 2010

Beevor had a privileged upbringing in some ways (she grew up in a castle; Bernard Berenson was a family friend). However this is not a book by a sheltered or snobby mind. Beevor is curious and open to everyone and everything in her surroundings, and the conditions are idyllic but far from pampering. She is wonderful company. Tuscany through her eyes is vibrant and memorable.
