Soon the guests arrive, and we learn all about their writing ambitions, their lives, and their insecurities. As the course continues, they start to gel as a group, and we , the readers, start to care about their lives, and what will happen to them when the course finishes. The Italian background, with the idyllic scenery, and the delicious food, is ever present, and there is a suspenseful denoument, as the course reaches it's climax. The characters are well drawn, and above all it is very funny; I laughed out loud several times as I read it. Highly recommended to all lovers of literature and Italy.
As with the books written under Dominica's nom de plume there are unexpected twists in the storyline
Rather than stretch out the book the epilogue gives a summary of the events after the final chapter.
Definitely a worthwhile read
All the characters are interesting and there are excerpts from their writing and diaries dotted throughout the book which I found really good. I think my favourite character is Mary - 74 and a retired spinster. I also liked Anna - constantly overshadowed by her more flamboyant friend Cat.
This is easy reading but it is excellent quality. If you are interested in writing you will be able to pick up lots of helpful tips from the book as well as enjoying the interaction between the characters and the Tuscan background. I loved it.
Very well written and beautifully described and with accuracy I can say this as I know the region well and have been their many times. I brought back memories of happy holidays.
