Hello again, savvy savers! Today finds us with a new book review, and this time one of my favorite novel-turned-film adaptation, the New York Times bestseller, Under the Tuscan Sun: At Home in Italy, by
It’s best to begin this review by admitting: I’m biased. I love this book. I liked the film, too! With that said, I was excited to see that a new 20th Anniversary Edition with a New Afterword was currently available, and even for those who are already familiar with this story will love this new copy as well.
For those unfamiliar with the plot, it’s worth noting that two decades ago, Frances Mayes–widely published poet and travel writer–introduced readers to a wondrous new world known as Tuscany when she bought and restored an abandoned villa, Bramasole, located Tuscan countryside.
Under the Tuscan inspired generations to start their own journeys–whether that be flying to a foreign country or creating out of the box seasonal recipes, or simply being transported by Mayes’s signature sensory, flowery, friendly, familiar language.
Now, with a new afterword from the Bard of Tuscany herself, the 20th-anniversary edition of Under the Tuscan Sun brings us up-to-date with the book’s most beloved characters in a new and refreshing way.
This book is currently sold in paperback for under $12.00 shipped two-day using Amazon Prime, here.
