    If you are interested in Sicily (or not!), this book is really wonderful. Written by an author who really knows Sicily (see: On Persephone's Island), this is a story of Maria Grammatico and her actual experience overcoming long odds to become a well-known and well-loved bakery owner in Erice. Includes some wonderful recipes for pastry. If you are ever in Erice be sure to stop at Pasticceria Maria Grammatico!
