Synopses & Reviews
When ten women set foot in the Campania region of Southern Italy, they become instantly
mesmerized by the region. Is it the tranquil aqua blue waters of the Mediterranean . . .
the spectacular vistas that offer views of a horizon that stretches on forever...or the charming
Italian men they meet along the way? Whatever it is, the women quickly realize they have
fallen under the undeniable charm of Italy.
Gelato Sisterhood on the Amalfi Shore is part personal diary, part historical review, part
travelogue. The author/tour director escorts the reader and her small group of women into the
2000-year-old streets of Pompeii, the lemon groves and olive orchards outside sun-washed
ancient Roman towns and out to the isle of Capri, the romantic playground of the rich and
famous. It is a 7-day excursion that takes the reader over narrow roads that bisect the lava
enriched farmland as historical treasure after treasure await around every hairpin turn.
The women indulge in the incomparable regional food and wine, succumb to the siren song of
stunning handmade ceramics and learn the fascinating stories of this historically rich corner of
earth. When you turn the last page, you will understand why the Amalfi Coast is one of the
most talked about locations in the world, and why literary luminaries such as D.H. Lawrence,
Oscar Wilde and Harriet Beecher Stowe spent long sojourns there.
