Author De Blasi, Marlena
Title That summer in Sicily A love story
Publication details Crows Nest, N.S.W. : Allen & Unwin 2008
Notes "That summer in Sicily is the captivating story of a journey Marlena de Blasi and her husband Fernando took to the island of Sicily to research a new book of recipes from the region. One day, tired, hungry and frustrated, they are given directions to the Villa Donnafugata (literally: house of the escaped woman). In true Marlena de Blasi style, she quickly uncovers entrancing and compelling stories where tales of love, aristocracy and delicious food sit side by side with romance and mysterious escape. The unusual castle-like Villa Donnafugata and its estate is alive with the rhythms created by the eighteen widows and seven men who have been taken in by the regal and stylish owner, Tosca. The widows bake, cook and clean for the household and the old men work in the gardens and tend the plantations of lavender and olives. As Marlena unravels for us the story of how Tosca came to own the villa, and make it the sanctuary it is, Marlena herself is enchanted by the discovery of this community. Taking inspiration, she and Fernando set off to find ways to enrich their own lives."--Provided by publisher.
