UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN:
At Home in Italy

Author: Frances Mayes

Mayes entered a wondrous new world when she began restoring an abandoned villa in the spectacular Tuscan countryside. There were unexpected treasures at every turn: faded frescos beneath the whitewash in her dining room, a vineyard under wildly overgrown brambles in the garden, and, in the nearby hill towns, vibrant markets and delightful people. In Under the Tuscan Sun, she brings the voice of a poet, the eye of a seasoned traveller, and the discerning palate of a cook and food writer to invite readers to explore the pleasures of Italian life and to feast at her table.

$15.00 (softcover)
