~a book set in another country~

our selection was~

we all met at Barbara's home for a touch of italian cuisine to try and make the pages dance across our palates and mind. with a gorgeous spread of italian goodies, and the popping sounds of processco, we began discussing the book. some found marlena's flowery phrasing to irksome to enjoy, others mentioned not being drawn into the book since it was more a collective story than plot driven. those that loved the book were enchanted with her adjectives, her passion for food and the moving communal stories of the woman. our votes were the following~

barbara 4.5
beverly 4
carol 3
