Continuing Frances Mayes's account of her love affair with Italy, Bella Tuscany presents the author w truly at home there, meeting the challenges of learning a new language and touring regions outside Tuscany, including castle towns, fishing villages, and islands. With fresh adventures and updates on the characters introduced in Under the Tuscan Sun, Mayes also explores new themes in this wondrous corner of the world, delving into gardening, wine-making, and the experience of primavera - a season of renewed possibility. And Mayes reveals more simple pleasures from her Tuscan kitchen in a section devoted to recipes. In the sensuous, vivid prose that has become her hallmark, Bella Tuscany celebrates Mayes's deepening connection to the land and her flourishing friendships in a newfound haven of idyllic living.
FRANCES MAYES is the author of four books about Tuscany. The now-classic UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN - which was a NEW YORK TIMES bestseller for more than two and a half years and became a Touchstone movie starring Diane Lane - was followed by BELLA TUSCANY and two illustrated books, IN TUSCANY and BRINGING TUSCANY HOME. Mayes is also the author of the novel SWAN, six books of poetry, THE DISCOVERY OF POETRY and A YEAR IN THE WORLD. She lives in Cortona, Italy, and the San Francisco Bay Area.
