Under the Tuscan Sun

Under the Tuscan Sun ~ Frances Mayes. Listen to the audiobook, it's Frances reading her story and her southern accent is charming and really takes you to Cortona. The movie is nothing like the book.

"Under the Tuscan Sun", Bramasole. This is the real one in the Tuscan town of Cortona that the Author Frances Mayes lives in- not the one used in filming. Of course, Lauren & I just had to see this for ourselves!
