When you need a love story, but you aren't willing to delve into the Avalon romance section of covers of big brawny men lustfully cradling their Playboy models in their laps, try this book. It's much more real, but still very sweet.

The best parts of the book are the descriptions of all the food--bufala mozzarella, fettuccine al limone and you can almost taste the fresh fruits described. Jamie Oliver even included a line on the back cover about how good everything sounded.
