Under the Tuscan Sun by Frances Mayes - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book Under the Tuscan Sun:

Food, frescoes, and foundation repairs

My favorite Frances Mayes quote from the book:

"Life offers you a thousand chances....all you have to do is take one."

Questions I pondered while reading Under the Tuscan Sun:

Could I have made a choice like that?

How much pasta is considered binge eating?

My review of Under the Tuscan Sun:

I admire/envy this life.

I was starving the entire book.

I need to plant more basil and drink more wine.
