5.0 out of 5 stars A Sensitive Classic, 2 Oct. 2011
Light in the Piazza appeals to the sense of hope and optimism in everyone. It is a very tender and compelling story, involving a mildly mentally impaired young woman and her mother, who travel to Florence in the 1950's. The young woman falls in love, forcing her mother to make a difficult decision about her daughter's future. This is the kind of story that never fails to tug at your heart strings everytime you read it. It is tender and sensitive, without being overly sentimental. The story was adapted and made into a sucessful film in 1962 and reincarnated into a hit broadway play. I highly reccommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The movie was good. Is the book half as good?, 21 Mar. 1999
By A Customer
Unfortunately, you don't give a synopsis of Light in the Piazza and I want to know was it made into a movie -or was the title borrowed from the movie with Olivia de Havilland, Rossano Brassi, George Hamilton and Yvette Mimieux? Since I can't find a video of the movie I would like to read the book as I loved the movie.
