A friend revisited in Southern Italy

Must admit that this book was only at one library in the US and that is a shame. Annie Hawes of the memoir "Extra Virgin" and "Ripe for the Picking" continues her tale of an English expat living in Italy.

This time Annie is taking a "Journey to the South". Her fiance's mother has had a death in the family, so the family is headed to Calabria. Just as Hawes had to learn the ways of northern Italy, she has to learn to follow her fiance's crazy family version of Italian. I really enjoyed meeting the southern branch of her new family. Lots of fun
