This is an auction for LOVE TAKES YOU HOME, by Julie Capaldo. reviews:

“FIVE STARS!!! I bought this book when it was first published and loved it for its gentle humour, dark moments and beautifully drawn characters. A lot happens in this book. If you are looking for an "Eat, Pray, Love" style, single (self) focussed novel, look elsewhere. The plot is intricate and demands attention as we follow the characters over many years in both Italy and Australia. But Capaldo writes with such a light touch and with such obvious feeling that I found it a joy to read. In short, this is a book that sits on my bookshelf alongside 'The LIttle World of Don Camillo', 'I Heard The Owl Call My Name' and other favourite character novels in the short-connected-stories genre. And like those books, it rewards re-reading. Highly recommended.”

“This is a novel about food and about people. Each of the thirteen stories is accompanied by a recipe which is related to the people and their part in the story. The plot takes us on a journey with Grace Sabato as she recalls her childhood, her senses infused with the pungent odours of garlic, expresso and baccala, and reminiscences of a distant land where she has never lived and the melodies of a language she cannot speak. The recipes includes pigeon in a pan, homemade pasta, minestrone, baccala, gnocchi, and polenta. The novel was shortlisted in 1996 for the literary category of the Julia Child Cookbook Award."
