"The renovations to 34 via del Duomo now complete, Marlena de Blasi, the bestselling international author and woman with the 'fairytale life', longs to find time and space to finish a book. Lured by a friend's offer of a simple stone cottage in a remote province of western Tuscany and distant from the distractions of everyday life in Orvieto, she sets off for a period of solitude. Enter Antonia. Imperious, tempestuous, Antonia is the still stunning elderly matriarch of a complicated family of four generations of beautiful blue-eyed, high-bottomed, high-strung hellions, each with a story of her own." --Front flap.

This memoir of a woman's life in Tuscany during WWII reads smoothly from beginning to end. You feel all of the emotions that are pent up in Antonia's heart all these years later.

This book is quite similar to the author's book set in Sicily where the story is focussed on another woman and her life in Italy. I didn't realise how badly Tuscany was affected in WWII.
