Summary: Katherine Wilson recounts her life in Italy, starting with her arrival as a young exchange student. She tells of the second family she discovered far from home and all she has learned from them.
What I Thought: This was a fun read. It is exactly what you would expect from a book of this type. Travel and food memoirs have been popular for a long time and this is a nice addition to the genre.
The chapters are short and Wilson shares openly about her transition to life in Italy. There is plenty of miscommunication and plenty of love. Plenty of food, too. Wilson reinforces the idea that Italian mothers feed their families plentiful amounts of delicious cuisine.
I enjoyed the book. It was an easy read and one that I would pick up for a short chapter or two before bed. Italy has long been on my travel wish list and Wilson's descriptions only made me want to go even more.
Will I Re-Read: Probably not
A Reduced Review:Travel and food memoirs have been popular for a long time and this is a nice addition to the genre.
