Umbria

When Patricia Clough, a former foreign correspondent, bought a house in Umbria, she knew that buying her dream home did not mean that life would become a dream. By the end of this book, in which she describes the journey of making Umbria her home, she is sure that if one has basic requirements for being happy, then Umbria provides some of the best surroundings for happiness. Clough pores over Umbria's enchanting countryside, its tumultuous history, its ancient culture and sumptuous food, and laments that for a long time Umbria was mistaken for its fashionable neighbour, Tuscany. This is not a guide to buying a home in Italy, nor a guidebook for your holiday though it would be useful as both of these things but a story in which a woman discovers and marvels at the place she begins to call home.

Patricia Clough is a former journalist, who now lives and works as a writer in Umbria. She is a successful author in Germany, where her books include English Cooking: A Reputation Disproved and Hannelore Kohl, Two Lives.
