Every single book I've read by Marlena De Blasi has touched my heart. I love this author. I love the incredibly descriptive pictures she paints of life in Italy. I want to sit down with her and eat warm bread and olive oil and listen to her talk all day long. I feel like the people in her stories are family, like I can taste the food they eat and see the expressions on their faces. Rarely do I read authors who have such an ability to open the canvas of the mind with their words. This story follows she and her husband on their search for a home in Italy. They end up in Umbria, but the process of actually moving into their home takes several years. The story is charming and heart warming, and an absolute must-read for anyone who wants to experience Italy without paying airfare :)
