Extra Virgin: A Young Woman Discovers the Italian Riviera, Where Every Month Is Enchanted


Part novel, part memoir, "Extra Virgin" is the story of two painfully pale English sisters who find themselves reveling amongst the sun-drenched olive groves and earthy inhabitants of a small Italian village. Hired to work for ten weeks to graft roses near the Riviera, board and lodging included, little does either of them know that their brief stay will stretch into infinity.
