Excellent self deprecating and honest view of Italy from an amusing writer. An enjoyable short holiday read.

Useful Italian Phrase: (insert effusive hand gestures indicating the highest praise, while having enormous smile on face) 8 May 2013
By Kathleen Vrijmoet - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It's so nice to open up a book and be taken on a quality journey, learn some things along the way, and have a great time in the process. I couldn't put The Road Less Graveled down, up late in bed, waking my husband every few minutes with my laughter. Thoughtful, immensely entertaining, intelligent...just as the writer didn't want to depart, I didn't want the journey to end. Looking forward to more from Laird.

don't miss this delightful excursion to Tuscany 4 May 2013
By G. Silberberg - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Seattle mom Wendy, work-focused Lance and their two young kids decide to take a sabbatical in Italy for a year. What occurs is by turns hilarious, bittersweet and endearing and always a pleasure to savor. The author's captivating writing transports the reader to the quirkiness of a country that hasn't quite mastered all the improvements since the Renaissance. The crisp style and dry wit of the author make it easy to imagine that you are living her experiences. Indeed, I felt upon finishing that I had a longing for La Dolce Vita. Buy it and during a pausa pranzo (a long lunch) and a cappuccino, indulge yourself until the end. If only the book were longer...

Can't wait for more 8 May 2013
By Mike Harrington - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you liked A Year in Provence or Lunch in Paris, you'll thoroughly enjoy Laird's tale of a Seattle family that trades the American rat-race for a year in Italy. This often witty tale weaves Italian history, politics and food into an inspiring narrative of what happens when a family decides to take a risk. Be prepared to re-think your priorities after reading this book. My only criticism is that I wish the book was longer and dug a little deeper into what the experience was like for Laird's children.

Fabulous!! 6 Jun. 2013
By SWH - Published on

What a great introduction to the Kindle Single! This story transports you to Florence and gives you an inside peek into an American's year abroad. Was it everything they hoped it would be? It depends on who (and when) you ask. Would they do it all again? Absolutely. Does it make you want to pack up your family and try it yourself? For sure. In her debut novella, Wendy Laird uses humor to share both the triumphs and the challenges of the experience. The only downside is that it isn't longer.... you will put it down wanting more.

Oh, please! 20 Sept. 2013
By Richelle - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I wasn't expect a book about some extremely privileged white woman complaining about how she becomes homeless (ie staying at friend's million dollar homes while they are at their summer houses) because they can't afford their own million dollar home anymore. She came across as pompous and arrogant. I wish we all had the same kind of problems she has had!
