About the Book

Bella Tuscany: The Sweet Life in Italy

Bella Tuscany is Frances Mayes's passionate and lyrical account of her ongoing love affair with Italy that she began in her #1 bestseller Under the Tuscan Sun. Now truly at home there, Mayes writes of her deepening connection to the land, her flourishing friendships with the local people, the joys of art, food, and wine, and the rewards and occasional heartaches of her villa's ongoing restoration. It is also a memoir of a season of change, and of renewed possibility. As spring becomes summer, she revives her lush gardens, meets the challenges of learning a new language, tours regions from Sicily to the Veneto, and faces transitions in her family life. Filled with recipes from her Tuscan kitchen and written in the sensuous and evocative prose that has become her hallmark, Bella Tuscany is a celebration of the sweet life in Italy.
