A Sweet Taste of Italy - An Italian Coffee Table Book
by Janie Jerome
This book is sweet tale of a sweet love affair between an Italian man and an English woman who both thought they were too old for "love". Set in the breath taking town of Amalfi it is written with simplicity innocence and charm rare in today's modern world. The new "Brief Encounter" of the twenty first century A Sweet Taste of Italy is a "Serendipity" of a book not to be missed.
