Donna asked Frances Mayes:

What is it like living in Italy? I have always wanted to go there. I have such a passion for Italy in my heart. I love how you discribe everything so the readers can see it through your eyes. Donna

Frances Mayes I've written SO much about what it's like to live there. In a nutshell, it's divine. It's a privilege to live in beauty--the town, the landscape, the pace of life, the places you can travel easily--all beautiful. And, for me, inspiring as a place to write.
