Abstract:

Actors Tucker and Eikenberry, having sent their last child off to college, were vacationing in Italy when they happened upon a small cottage nestled in the Umbrian countryside. The 350-year-old rustico sat perched on a hill in the verdant Spoleto valley amid an olive grove and fruit trees of every kind. It was literally love at first sight, and the couple purchased the house without testing the water pressure or checking for termites. Shedding the vestiges of their American life, Michael and Jill endeavored to learn the language, understand the nuances of Italian culture, and build a home in this new chapter of their lives. Both a celebration of a good marriage and a careful study of the nature of home, this book is a travelogue written with an epicurean's delight in detail and a gourmand's appreciation for all things fine.--From publisher description.
