A Thousand Days in Venice by Marlena de Blasi
Spring break took us to Delaware to reconnect with family and spend a few days near the ocean. I wanted a true escape from my normal reading, and A Thousand Days in Venice proved to be just perfect. Marlena de Blasi was a food writer visiting in Venice, when a handsome man approached her, told her she was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen and promised to pursue her. Their love story is accompanied by recipes and lovely descriptions of Venice. I was drawn into the beautiful landscapes and am excited to read the continuation in A Thousand Days in Tuscany.
