It's a storyteller's maxim: When choosing between truth and legend--always go with legend. In D.L. Smith's wonderful tale of life in a forgotten little town in Tuscany, vivid characters like the greedy and conniving Leo Pizzola and his partner in crime, the loveable Topo, must pay penance by manufacturing a miracle that will renew beloved Father Elio's faith in himself and in God. Their hilariously bungled attempts ultimately pay off in something truly miraculous. Actor William Hope's voice is as warm and pleasing as the Italian sun, with just the right touch of red wine, bread, and vinegar. R.O. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 04]
