About the Book
From her rooftop terrace, Penelope Green looks out across the sparkling waters of the Bay of Naples, and down into a garden of lemon trees and magnolias. Has her Italian dream come true? For Penny and her Italian love, Alfonso, the idyllic island of Procida, across the bay from Capri, can offer the life they are looking for. But first Penny has to find a way into its tight community. One thing she has in common with the locals is a love of food, so she sets herself a goal to master the Procidan cuisine and become more than just a visitor. Across kitchen tables, in bustling cafes, and over long lunches under vine-covered pergolas, Penny learns the art of Italian cooking, builds friendships, and discovers the rhythms and secrets of island life.
