Cassandra Campbell's melodious tone and deliberate pace seem created for the figurative language and lyricism of this audiobook. Campbell's eloquent intonation syncs beautifully with Mayes's philosophical musings on place, home, and family. Mayes built her considerable reputation as a memoirist by sharing her wanderlust and love of all things Tuscan, especially in her memoir UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN. In this new work, her memories sail from her Southern roots to her passion for restoration, which is expressed when she creates a home in North Carolina and then another in Cortona, the Italian hill town where her now famed villa sits. The work includes fine asides on Southern writers and cucina povera (poor cooking). Campbell shares Mayes's recipes and soul-enhancing stories, while capturing her warm heart. A.D.M.
