Novel set in Italy- Dreaming of Tuscany, T A Williams
Dreams of Tuscany, romance with T A Williams
TA Williams is an author who loves his locations and uses them with excellent results. He writes but paints with his words so the locations jumps from the page. This book is one of the “Dreaming of….” series and you can’t get a much better sense of a place as well as a good romantic story than by reading TA Williams books.
It’s off to Tuscany this time!
Sometimes, you need to read a certain book that transports to a certain time and place and makes you feel calm. I wish the villa at the centre of this story was real as I would be on the next flight out. If it made me feel as happy and relaxed as it did in the novel ,imagine its healing qualities in real life!
The setting is always the strong point in TA Williams’s novels but the stories are equally captivating and the characters heartwarming too. I enjoyed reading about the ill-tempered celebrity and the good in a crisis Gayle. Bree and Mimi start to have a good relationship and it was nice to be part of that.
The villa where they end up is remote and in the middle of nowhere. Fictional, yet TA Williams brings the scenery and the setting to life with his luscious words. He evokes the sights, sounds and aromas of that region well and I could feel the sun on my face as I imagined i was there too. Bree has to adapt to country living, well they both do. They go walking and explore the area which is when I slowed down myself and took time to imagine I could see what they could.
I’m even tempted to get a dog now that I’ve met Romeo. A dog brings people together and makes for some funny moments and I wasn’t disappointed in the slightest.
It’s charming, war-hearted and just the kind of book I needed when I started it. Characters are fun and well written, Very clear to see as they come alive from the page. I had a lovely time in Tuscany and would love to return!
I wonder where TA Williams will take me next!
