This book took forever to read It wasn t gripping, their was no cohesive storyline and even after completing it I couldn t say what the point of this book was However, the author clearly delights in language as evidenced by her vivid descriptions of the scenery I also enjoyed the fact that she wrote about the year as it unfolded chaotically The reader gets the full force of how chaotic life in a Tuscan village can be, with all the locals, events, histories, and of course food. I enjoyed her first book, but this one got very tedious She jumps from subject to subject too quickly She should have lingered on a few stories, and developed them extensively This book is too detailed to a fault I could not keep track of all the names she threw around It was just a rehashing of the stories in her first book, which described Tuscany so beautifully This one, not so much
