    Fun read!

    Ferenc has a talent for mixing a good dose of humor into whatever he writes. This book is a pure warm, fuzzy, and at times funny read. It peeks into the lives of the country folks of Tuscany and their land, and what it's like to start a new life there. IMHO, it completely blows "Under the Tuscan Sun" away.

    Okay, but somewhat disappointing.

    If you have already read "A Year in Provence" and others in the series by Peter Mayle or the Frances Mayes books on Tuscany, you will be disappointed by this narrative of similar content. Ferenc Mate is a good writer, but the story seemed to drag on and on and I found myself skipping whole paragraphs to get on to the next event. I also bought "A Vineyard In Tuscany" at the same time and hope it will be a better read. One aspect of "The Hills of Tuscany" I did like was that he translated the Italian quotes into English, something that similar books frequently fail to do.
