This memoir is for anyone who dreams of starting life over in an exotic place. Overweight, unhealthy, and lonely, writer Kamin Mohammadi left her stressful London life and moved to Florence, Italy for a year. Her new routines include walking everywhere, shopping for fresh food at markets, learning to cook simple meals (recipes included) and eating reasonable portions. Her colorful Italian friends influence the way she thinks, eats, drinks and loves. She learns to embrace her most beautiful self  “all the time and in every way” and adopts a more simple existence, savoring the sweetness of a slower pace.
