Sabina Quartet: Stories from Italy

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
These seasonal stories about a farming community in Rome’s olive hills—“the Sabina”—bring to life an ancient world where foreigners and locals have always lived side by side but separately. The unique culture of the place, steeped in the historic rivalries of Italy’s medieval hilltowns, finds vivid portrayal in these lively tales about
the local residents and their traditions.

Review by: Peggy Cajati on Sep. 8, 2013 :
The author manages to depict scenes and charming personalities from Italian life as skillfully as Moravia with scintillating detail. This is a brilliant writer!
I couldn't put it down.
