Under the Tuscan sun : at home in Italy

Frances Mayes entered a wonderous world when she began restoring an abandoned villa in the spectacular Tuscan countryside. There were unexpected treasures at every turn; faded frescoes 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 delightfulpeople. In Under the Tuscan Sun, she brings the lyrical voice of a poet, the eye of a seasoned traveler, and the discerning palate of a cook and food writer to celebrate the pleasures of Italian life.
