Bella Tuscany Summary

Bella Tuscany by Frances Mayes

Continuing Frances Mayes's account of her love affair with Italy, Bella Tuscany presents the author now truly at home there, meeting the challenges of learning a new language and touring regions outside Tuscany, including castle towns, fishing villages, and islands. With fresh adventures and updates on the characters introduced in Under the Tuscan Sun, Mayes also explores new themes in this wondrous corner of the world, delving into gardening, wine-making, and the experience of primavera - a season of renewed possibility. And Mayes reveals more simple pleasures from her Tuscan kitchen in a section devoted to recipes. In the sensuous, vivid prose that has become her hallmark, Bella Tuscany celebrates Mayes's deepening connection to the land and her flourishing friendships in a newfound haven of idyllic living.

Bella Tuscany Reviews

"'There is much to enjoy in this volume, which is part guidebook, part gardening manual, part cookery book, part history, part language course, and which rolls along with sustained vigour and joyous enthusiasm'" * Daily Mail *
"'Meanders anecdotally and thoughtfully through a sabbatical spring and long summer . . . Part travelogue and part intelligent reflection on the essential quality of Italy and Italians'" * Independent *
