Brilliantly written, beautiful characters, and wonderful settings!
Pellegrino writes with great insight into women, life and food. If you want to be entertained on holiday and just read it casually, then this is a book for you. If you want to reflect on what is being written about, then too, this is a book for you. I think mostly, you'll enjoy the book more if you like food and cooking.
Another thing, it's not that easy to put down :)
Nicky Pellegrino lives in New Zealand but her father was Italian and she writes beautifully about Italian life and food. This is the first one that's been set in Sicily and was inspired by an actual holiday that she had. The sense of warmth and history is palpable and the descriptions of the food are mouth watering.
The premise behind the book is not terribly original - I was reminded of books like Heartbreak Hotel and A Week in Winter - but it's well told and makes a pleasant, undemanding, enjoyable read. After reading it I felt refreshed, like I really had been away! The four central characters are interesting and rounded with the exception perhaps of Poppy, who's sweet to the point of dull and just seems kind of...wet. Even her decision to leave her husband (before the book began) seems to have been made without any violent emotion.
I thought this was one of the best books that Nicky Pellegrino has written and I really enjoyed it.
