Willowy and aloof, with an aura of a distant time, Tosca was a woman whose life story begged to be told. In the warmth of Tosca's garden, Marlena would receive bountiful lessons of life and love as the story of Tosca's fairy-tale romance with an Italian prince unfolded.

"[A] fragrant tale of life and love in the mountains of Sicily....Swift, sinuous, deep and brimming with cultural artifacts." (Kirkus Reviews)
I have just finished " Summer in Sciliy". I found it to be a most haunting love story. It was not drippy or sappy. It had substance. I was thinking about it even when I wasn't listening to it. I feel Marlena de Blasi's voice was perfect for the reading of the story. It was soft and very enjoyable to hear. A must listen.
