This is the sequel to A Thousand Days in Venice. I love Marlena's style and attention to the tiny details that make this story an invitatin to fully join her. You feel her joys and sorrows and actually live daily in the tiny Tuscan village along with her and her husband. To complete the experience she includes recipes of the dishes she mentions, and the overall effect is one of longing to be right there. I found it hard to put the book down.
