A friend shared this book with me. It is written by Frances Mayes who wrote Under the Tuscan Sun.
I read it after our trip to Italy and it conjured up great memories for us. Really enjoy all the examples of how Italian culture varies from US culture and how 3 single women "of a certain age" navigate it. I didn't find the ending very well put together, but I don't think it was the point of the book. The journey was more important than the ending. It goes well beyond the typical "no cappuccino after 11" differences.
