really liked it
bookshelves: travel-memoirs

While Ms. Mayes' prose is still lyrical and descriptive, this travel memoir is less about the thrill of living part-time in her adopted country, Italy, and more about the day to day hubbub of life. I still enjoyed it, as I LOVE Italy, but I would have to say that in her original memoir, "Under the Tuscan Sun", the sun does shine more sweetly. One note...the recipes in both add a nice touch of whimsy for the industrious cook/gourmand.
