This is really a 3.5 star read for me. I love Hazzard, and I love Italy. I read this book while in the country, a nice treat. I didn't find it as gripping as some of her other novels. There wasn't a whole lot of chemistry in the seduction, and I guess the role of detachment in a seasonal love affair is what Hazzard was trying to explore here. Some of the more intellectual passages were rather impenetrable, too. But if you love the Italian countryside, and you like a little romance, read it-- it's short and sweet.
