In 1951 a young American girl went to Italy for the first time - and fell instantly in love. Not with a person, but with the country.
This book is her account of a lifetime of memories of her Italian obsession, taken from her very detailed diaries.
From falling in love to becoming engaged and married in Italy, to honeymooning there and enjoying a lifetime of experiences since, this book is entertaining, funny and informative all at the same time.
A mixture of guide book and cook book, it will appeal to all those who are already Italophiles and to those who are tempted; to those who have been to Italy and know it well to those who are just thinking about it.
Past and present Italy is alive on every page. This book will bring a smile to your face and memories to your mind. Don't miss it.
