The piazza, feasts and celebrations, the fields, and the beauty of the scenery and the Tuscan people are highlighted in this collection of essays about the Italian region by Frances and Edward Mayes. Frances's honeyed drawl conveys a leisurely tone as she describes the details of her adopted home. Edward does a more dramatic reading, adding character voices and segments. The audio could have benefited from clearer divisions between the four subject areas of the book, and perhaps a booklet of some of the photos seen in the print version, but the authors' essays stand alone as evocative reading.
