Okay, there is a book by Frances Mayes and a movie of the same name. I got the book and then started seeing the promos for the movie. I have to tell you, that it made me put the book aside. I don't often get out to movies and I have to tell you that it looked to me like a chick flick and not a good one. However, I was going on a plane and the book was there and so I took it with me.
As far as I can tell the book and the movie only share a title. The book is great. It is the story of the author and her husband Ed and their adventures after buying a house in Tuscany. It is like reading a blog. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
