    Gemma Jericho is an overworked New York doctor with a handful of a teenaged daughter and a mother who worries that Gemma has no life. So when her mother receives a mysterious letter telling her about an even more mysterious inheritance in Tuscany, Gemma sees her chance. The three of them throw caution and convention to the wind and leave for Italy.

    Alice Curtis says: "Don't be fooled."

    Overall

    A delightful 'read'. I swear I could smell the air, taste the food; and now I want to pack my bags, say 'ciao', and head for Tuscany. I delighted in the small comical turns that Gemma encountered; and I think I've met her mother at least once.

    Celeste Lawson's reading of this book is graceful and charming. And now I want more Elizabeth Adler books!

    No wonder it's so hard to lose weight, our bodies are designed to keep weight on at all costs; it's a matter of survival. It's embedded in our DNA. Our diet has changed dramatically over the past ten thousand years, but our genetic blueprint has not, our bodies are not designed to process the types of food we are fed today.

    Overall

    Over-the-top excellent information on how best to nourish and sustain our bodies and keep them healthy. Dr. Hyman's narrative is full of energy and promise. This is what's happening now: the knowledge of the how and why of failure of understanding of our food information and diet in contemporary America.
    Makes sense.
    Makes you want to think carefully about what you eat and what you don't eat!

    In 1970, one of Mississippi's more colorful weekly newspapers, The Ford County Times, went bankrupt. To the surprise and dismay of many, ownership was assumed by a 23 year-old college dropout, named Willie Traynor. The future of the paper looked grim until a young mother was brutally raped and murdered by a member of the notorious Padgitt family. Willie Traynor reported all the gruesome details, and his newspaper began to prosper.

    Overall

    I was surprised and charmed by this book. I expected another lawyer novel(all of which I've enjoyed); but I was surprised to find a story that reflected the life in Mississippi described by a relative outsider. How extraordinary this book was!! A very nice surprise.
    Never expect less or more than you will receive.
