Narrator Felicity Jurd's delightful Australian accent enriches this poignant memoir about an Aussie family's year in Italy. As WWOOFERS--travelers who work on organic farms in exchange for room and board--Pip and her young family experienced living quarters ranging from a leaky toolshed to a newly remodeled apartment. Jurd describes the dissatisfaction with high-pressure city jobs that led Pip and her husband to yearn for a better life. But Pip was uncertain about farming. So they set out to learn firsthand from experienced farmers in Italy. Pip's sheer joy in Italian country life is apparent in Jurd's narration, and the amusing anecdotes are recounted with a twinkle. There is warmth in Jurd's voice when describing the most beloved of their Italian hosts, who eventually become lifelong friends. N.M.C. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2021]
