Review quote

Critical Acclaim for Frances Mayes and Under the Tuscan Sun:

"Tuscany may have found its own bard in Frances Mayes."
--New York Times

"This beautifully written memoir about taking chances, living in Italy, loving a house, and always, the pleasures of food, would make a perfect gift for a loved one. But it's so delicious, read it first yourself."
--USA Today

"So enchanting that an armchair traveler will find it hard to resist jumping out of the chair and following in her footsteps."
--Publishers Weekly

"Graceful . . . at once joyful and full of common sense . . . as intimate as a lover's whisper, honest and true."
--San Francisco Chronicle Book Review

"Irresistible . . . a sensuous book for a sensuous countryside."
--Minneapolis Star-Tribune
