Pip and Shannon dreamed of living the good life. They wanted to slow down, grow their own food, and spend more time with the people they love. But jobs and responsibilities got in the way: their chooks died, their fruit rotted, and Pip ended up depressed and in therapy. So they did the only reasonable thing – they quit their jobs, pulled the children out of school and went searching for la dolce vita in Italy.

One Italian Summer is a warm, funny and often poignant story of a family’s search for a better way of living in the homes and on the farms of strangers. Pip sleeps in a woodshed, feasts under a Tuscan sun, works like a tractor in Calabria and, eventually, finds her dream – though it’s not at all the one she expected.

Industry Reviews

Life offers you a thousand chances ... all you have to do is take one. - Frances Mayes, author of Under the Tuscan Sun

Lovely and authentic read!


I recently read this lovely book on a beach in Mexico, and was inspired to slow down and smell the coffee and enjoy the bread! I loved this honest and authentic book and was taken on an amazing journey.
