  • Life and love in Tuscany

    Thank you to Crown Publishing and NetGalley for providing an e-galley of Women in Sunlight by Frances Mayes in exchange for an honest review. Very rarely do I reach the end of a novel and wish it would go on for hundreds of pages. Frances Mayes, the author of Under the Tuscan Sun, captures the imagination of the reader through exquisite language and with obvious love to describe the landscape, the history, the food, the wines, the architecture and the people of Tuscany. This is the story of three American older single women, Camille, Julia and Susan. They are in the process of assessing retirement communities in the US when, on a whim, they lease a villa in Tuscany for a year and move in together. They become friends with Kit, also an American expat, who happens to be their neighbor. The four women, while getting acquainted and becoming good friends, encourage each other to make the best of what Tuscany can teach them. The year will prove to be life-changing for all of them. By the end of the book, you will be in love with Tuscany and see it through the eyes of Kit, Camille, Julia and Susan. What a joy this book is. Women in Sunlight is a treasure to be re-read more than once and savoured over and over again.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Marvelous Tuscany Adventure

    Three older women meet for the first time and soon decide to rent a house in Tuscany. They find adventure, love and are taken in by the village. Each have talents,one is a cook, so there are many descriptions of wonderful food and wine. The story is delightful. There is giving up old lives and baggage and finding new talents and new people.

  • Women in Sunlight

    I simply could not put it down! The descriptions of places and the food were so real! I felt that I was there! I may just have to go to Italy, especially to Venice & Tuscany! Thank you France's Mayes for this lovely book.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Only for seniors

    This book is more enjoyable for people who can relate to the characters in the book. I did not find this book engaging or captivating. I think my mother will enjoy it far better than I did.
