This is an auction for BELLA TUSCANY: THE SWEET LIFE IN ITALY by Frances Mayes, author of "Under the Tuscan Sun".

"A companion volume to UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN, BELLA TUSCANY is Frances Mayes's passionate and lyrical account of her continuing love affair with Italy. Now truly at home there, Mayes writes of her deepening connection to the land, her flourishing friendships with local people, the joys of art, food, and wine, and the rewards and occasional heartbreaks 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."

Amazon.com review:

"FIVE STARS!!! I enjoyed the continuing story of Frances Mayes' experience in Italy. After reading the author's first book, UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN, I could not wait to read BELLA TUSCANY. I was not disappointed. I enjoyed reading about Mayes' and her husband's life after the restoration of their new home in Italy - their neighbors, their garden with the various plants and flowers, their olive trees, their travels within Italy, their meals, learning a new language, everything!"
