A Postcard from Umbria by Damaris West

Written in a conversationalist style, Damaris reveals an honest approach to the trials and tribulations of relocating from the UK to Umbria in Italy. Damaris and her husband purchased a house which they renovated and dealing with the bureaucracy of such an event. Including surprises when they finally moved in!

In addition, the book reveals the frustrations of the weather, food, learning a musical instrument, developing new language skills and homesickness to build a new life in Umbria.

Whilst a short book at 60 pages I really enjoyed this one. I liked the style of the writing and the reality of the events along with the photographic illustrations. I hope to hear more of the author’s experiences in Italy.
