Happiness? The color of it must be spring green, impossible to describe until I see a just-hatched lizard sunning on a stone. That color, the glowing green lizard skin, repeats in every new leaf. The regenerative power of nature explodes in every weed, stalk, branch. Working in the mild sun, I feel the green fuse of my body, too. Surges of energy, kaleidoscopic sunlight through the leaves, the soft breeze that makes me want to say the word 'zephyr' - this mindless simplicity can be called happiness. Having spent her summers in Tuscany for the past several years, Frances Mayes relished the opportunity to experience the pleasures of primavera, an Italian spring. A sabbatical from teaching in San Francisco allowed her to return to Cortona - and her beloved house, Bramasole - just as the first green appeared on the rocky hillsides. Bella Tuscany, a companion volume to Under the Tuscan Sun, is her passionate and lyrical account of her continuing love affair with Italy. Now truly at home there, Mayes writes of her deepening connection to the land, her flourishing friendships with local people, the joys of art, food, and wine, and the rewards and occasional heartbreaks of her villa's ongoing restoration. It is also a memoir of a season of change, and of renewed possibility. As spring becomes summer she revives Bramasole's lush gardens, meets the challenges of learning a new language, tours regions from Sicily to the Veneto, and faces transitions in her family life. Filled with recipes from her Tuscan kitchen and written in the sensuous and evocative prose that has become her hallmark, Bella Tuscany is a celebration of the sweet life in Italy.… (mais)

If you liked "Under the Tuscan Sun",you will like this one.It continues on with her months/life spent in Bramasole each year. Frances and Ed and become part of the community and enjoy living the italian lifestyle.They continue to renovate the house italian style! very good read. She gets a bit long in some spots,but a very worthwhile read!!!!!This is a good book that "takes you away!"Good summer read. ( )

Frances Mayes takes us back to Bramasole, her home in Tuscany, just as spring comes to Cortona. This time she is with her love Ed; and the home terraces have blossomed, ready for the next phase of planting and design. It is a story of seasons, not just spring, summer fall and winter, it is about the seasons of life: the changes the come expectedly and those that sneak up on us. Bella Tuscany is just the type of book I love to read when the itch to travel is scratched by my lack of funds. So I journey vividly to Italy, and dream about what it would be like to spend a whole summer in this place, or anywhere that I could afford a second home. Also it’s fun to try the recipes she includes, and add the beans and different plants to my garden. 4 stars. ( )

This book is an easy read. However, it made me hungry and craving fennel. It also sorta inspired me to work on our garden. It reads somewhat like a diary of a year in Tuscany with side trips including Sicily. Frances Mayes loves Italy, food , wine , trees and flowers and makes you love it all too. ( )

Sequel to UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN; Frances Mayes has found happinessin love and location. A form of escape reading, but quite well-done and enjoyable. Highly recommended. Don't listen to the author reading her own work, though. ( )
