Kathryn Heyman & James Bradley

Shamus Sillar

Sicily, It's Not Quite Tuscany by Shamus Sillar

Packed with history, culture, misadventure, and a little Mafioso action, the story of a newly married couple and the year they spent in Sicily

This is the story of an Aussie couple who sought a Mediterranean Sea change only to find themselves in the sprawling Sicilian city of Catania—the "anti-Tuscany" of Italy. There, any romantic visions they'd had of restoring a villa or stamping their entwined feet in vats of Chianti grapes disappeared faster than the chief witness in a Cosa Nostra trial.
