I really liked the writing, it actually reminded me a bit of A Room With a View but I thought the plot was lame and the title didn’t fit at all. I know why it was titled that but it is an odd choice. I enjoyed the descriptions of Italy and the villa, great imagery.
A gentle, sweet book. I had a hard time grasping the story while I was reading it, but when I finished it, I found that I was smiling.
I'm giving this book the benefit of doubt with a three. I read it in a hurry because I brought it on a cruise in paperback form and didn't want to bring it home. It was barely interesting enough to keep reading and, while resolution is implied, several subplots are left hanging. Don't count on meeting Lily.
Odd little book I took from the boxes my friend Diana was giving away. I was left wondering if the author ever was quite clear why she was writing it.
Whimsical and atmospheric - imagine yourself in Italy!
