Summary
Three American women, new friends, all older single women, have taken a lease on a stone manse in Tuscany. They are escaping, reinventing, and reevaluating the fates expected of them as aging women in America. They are novices in a foreign culture, figuring out the day to day, but what they share is a gusto for life and a sturdy if indefinite determination to thrive. Released from their former lives, encouraging each other, and finding a lot of 'why not' courage, each woman becomes more than she'd dreamed she'd be
Summary
Four American expats and strangers become unexpected friends during a magical year in Tuscany marked by a writer's complicated relationship with the subject of her biography, long-postponed dreams and shifting senses of adventure and bravery
