This was a little different type of book. The narrator, Jan, is not really a major character in the book. She is relating other characters’ stories. The author does a great job with this historical fiction. Her descriptions of Italy and the area around the villa made me feel that I was sitting there and experiencing the environment in person. I could smell the food even as I turned the pages of the book.
