A Tuscan Childhood by Kinta Beevor

Wonderful...I fell immediately into her world, and was sorry when I reached the end. --Frances Mayes, author ofUnder the Tuscan Sun The sparkling memoir of an idyllic, bohemian childhood in an enchanted Tuscan castle between the wars. When Kinta Beeevor was five, her father, the painter Aubrey Waterfield, bought the sixteenth-century Fortezza della Brunella in the Tuscan village of Aulla. There her parents were part of a vibrant artistic community that included Aldous Huxley, Bernard Berenson, and D. H. Lawrence. Meanwhile, Kinta and her brother explored the glorious countryside, participated in the regions many seasonal rites and rituals, and came to know and love the charming, resilient Italian people. With the coming of World War II the family had to leave Aulla; years later, though, Kinta would return to witness the courage and skill of the Tuscan people as they rebuilt their lives. Lyrical and witty,A Tuscan Childhoodis alive with the timeless splendour of Italy.
