Contemporary Culture • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1996

Let the Tuscan sun warm you. Listeners can savor the delights of the countryside, fresh food, flowers and Italian village life through Frances Mayes’s memoir of restoring a stone villa in Tuscany and her exploration of the surrounding countryside. Barbara Caruso has no difficulty transporting listeners to the terraces and stone streets. Caruso’s voice is light and her Italian lyrical. She also gets to tell the whole story, revealing the kind of details, nuances and characters lost in abridgment. Listeners will find themselves immersed in Mayes’s vivid perceptions.
