Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 1999

Listening to this memoir brings to mind the word ABUNDANCE. The author, who also narates, relates tales of an Italian spring and summer with such love and effervescence that it's impossible not to appreciate the tomatoes stacked in the kitchen or the rainbow of roses on the terraces. At first, the listener may be caught off-guard by Mayes's lovely Southern accent, but it becomes an essential part of her enthusiastic personality. Mayes revels in the details of Tuscan life: the food (never listen to this when hungry), the wine, the gardens, the peopleS This audiobook is a patch of sunshine on a dark day-- curl up with it and soak in the warmth.
