A Writer in Umbria

 This is a true story of a couple who left California and moved to a small, isolated valley where time seemed to stand still. They bought and reconstructed a ruined farmhouse in the Italian countryside, but rebuilding the farmhouse is just one part of their adventure. The real story is about the lure of Italy.

The intimate stories in this book reveal surprising, funny, and profound experiences of daily living. Above all, it's about those small gifts in life that are handed to you, which--if you take them--can change you forever.


Excerpt

What is it about Italy? Everyone who falls in love with Italy feels the lure and tries to explain it. Even the Italians try to explain it. They get choked up when they talk about opera, Rome or Naples, pasta with porcini mushrooms, wine from local vineyards, fish from southern coasts, or ancient olive groves.

But something about the lure goes even deeper. It's not just the beauty of the land or the painting tradition or the Etruscan ruins. It's a way of living, a way of being, a way of relating to life that astounds you when you start to feel it.
