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.
Yes I would listen to this story again because it is so well and poetically written, and the audio is absolutely beautiful.
In this one instance I can honestly say I loved them all because each one added texture and depth to the story, drawing me completely into the landscape and period
I would hate to give away the ending, but it was the last letter disclosing information about the prince
There was nothing about this book other than the reviews and sample audio that interested me, I'm not a romance or drama reader except on occasion. But after starting this book I couldn't put it down and loved every moment, never hurrying through a single point. Wow was I ever touched at the deepest places in my heart. An all around perfect book.
