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.

Follow Your Heart will strike a chord with all those who are truly aware of the power to control one's own destiny. Every aspect of the woman's life-story touches on a different philiosophical outlook, which collectively serve to make us aware of the value of realising and experiencing true happiness. This book is for all those that have ever thrown reason aside when faced with a decision, and is also for those who chose to abide by the rules. We live with the consequences.

This is one of the best books I have read so far. I first read it a few years ago and have since read it a few times. What I like about the book-it has a gripping plot and is written in such a beautifully simple and honest manner; it is full of philosophical wisdom. I liked it so much that I ordered this copy for my partner. It was delivered in good condition and in good time.

A BIG disappointment! Except just few interesting thoughts, mainly borrowed from other famous philosophers, this book has nothing to offer. An arrogant and didactic piece of trash. It's unbelievable that this absolutely mediocre story is regarded by many as "one of the best in Italian literature of the XX century ...". AVOID, if you like a truly good literature!

I have read this book in a period where I was in need of a friendly advice on how to choose my path of life. I found it in this book. It took me a month to read it, only because I found each page to be more magical than the previous one and I did not want to lose that feeling. Tamaro writes superbly , mixing the emotions of three generations of women , in an elequant way. I definetely recommend it to all those women who are in need of a spiritual note in their lives.

I really like this story of a Mother, a daughter and a grand daughter. It was written quite some time ago but certainly stands the test of time. I have recommended it to many people

An amazing open review of a hard life.
Something to feel with and think about.
It shows again, sometimes life of a person is not as easy as it appears.

An interesting reflection about life and the decisions to be made while living. The decisions that matter are the ones made by the heart.

This book is sad and in some way dated. - I liked itt better many years ago!
I felt it was too sentimental for no real reason.

A beautiful book. Thought provoking. One of those 'nothing happens' so it has to be well written. Three more words
