The Light in the Piazza

Author: Elizabeth Spencer
Stars: 4
Review by: jamBob

This is a novella about a mother and daughter visiting Florence in the 1960s. The daughter is 26 with a childlike disposition due to an injury, however she meets and falls in love with a charming Italian man who seems to understand her innocence. The mother is in a quandary, wanting to do the best for her daughter and see her happy or should she tell the Italian family of the injury. I saw the movie starring Olivia De Havilland, Rossano Brazzi, George Hamilton just weeks before I visited Florence over memorial day weekend and read the story while I was there! Actually had dinner in the "Piazza." See the movie first, then read the book, both delightful.....Ciao!~
