A magical essay on life, love and destiny
on 9 May 2000
This is a book to be returned to time and time again for some homespun Italian wisdom. Written as a series of letters to her granddaughter, the author eloquently describes her own turbulent life and her thoughts on the nature of human love, the workings of fate and the importance of looking within. As comforting as a bowl of spaghetti without any of the schmaltz sometimes encountered in other semi-spiritual works, this book is truly inspirational and will stay with you forever.
