Description or summary of the book: Marlena di Blasi seduced readers to fall in love with Venice, then Tuscany, with her popular and critically acclaimed books 'A Thousand Days in Venice' and 'A Thousand Days in Tuscany.' Now she takes readers on a journey into the heart of Orvieto, an ancient city in the less-trodden region of Umbria. Rich with history and a vivid sense of place, her tale is by turns romantic and sensual, joyous and celebratory, as she and her husband search for a home in this city on a hill finding one that turns out to be the former ballroom of a dilapidated sixteenth-century palazzo. Along the way, de Blasi befriends an array of colorful characters, including cooks and counts and shepherds and a lone violinist, cooking her way into the hearts of her Umbrian neighbors.
