Description
In this long-awaited follow-up to Under the Tuscan Sun and Bella Tuscany, memoirist, travel writer, and poet Frances Mayes lyrically chronicles her continuing 20-year love affair with the region's people, art, cuisine, and way of life. Along with evocative reflections on the timeless beauty and vivid pleasures of Italian life, Mayes tells how her Tuscan experience dramatically expanded when she renovated a second home—a 13th-century house with a stone roof in the mountains above Cortona—and discovered the "wilder" side of Tuscany.

"Mayes conducts readers through the gentle and sometimes violent and disruptive undulations of the seasons from winter to summer in her Tuscan home of Bramasole. In this new memoir, she reflects on the palpable scents emitted by the old-growth chestnut, apple, and olive trees, the jovial hospitality and strength of her friends and neighbors, and the familiar and sometimes disturbing sounds of herds of wild boars rushing through the orchards. Mayes and her husband, Ed, situated themselves even more firmly in Tuscany a few years ago when they discovered a falling-down stone cottage on a rugged slope and restored it as a second home.... Mayes's affectionate and warm memoir vividly celebrates the lush abundance and charm of daily life in the Italian countryside."—Publishers Weekly
