bookshelves: italy, travel
Read from March 06 to 14, 2010

Her descriptions of pageants and places were full of poetic, vivid detail. She knows her flowers by name. Her depictions of friends and family were vivid without being too intrusive. Another memorable aspect of the book was her discussion of the Mafia; she gives harrowing accounts of Mafia violence that make the reader admire the courage and resilience of those who stand up to them.
