Four American women become unexpected friends during a magical year in Tuscany marked by a writer's complicated relationship with the subject of her biography, long-postponed dreams, and shifting senses of adventure and bravery.Kit Raine, an American writer living in Tuscany, is working on a biography of a friend.

Set in San Rocco, Italy, three American women lease a house and live one year of their lives. All have lost the men in their lives and they discover themselves anew though they’re older (65-70). Sometimes boring, sometimes understandably exciting because I am beyond those ages, and sometimes too descriptive and hard to follow, especially the first section. ( )

This book is so beautifully written, it may take you a while to read it. I found myself pausing to reread passages just to savor the beauty of the writing. Like many Frances Mayes works, this is set in Italy. It features a trio of older women who meet at an open house for "retirement" living, become friends, and decide to have an adventure together. It also features other expats who befriend them. It is simply a wonderful book. ( )

Loved the background of a small Tuscan town. Mayes sure can wax poetic describing Villa Assunta and San Rocco. You really want to be there. her characters are older women which is nice and refreshing and I love how they each are discovering themselves. The narrator is an American writer Kit and through her eyes we see these ladies. The only part I didn't really enjoy was the "Margaret" parts. Margaret is Kit's deceased friend who she plans to write a book about. I just don't care for this angle.
A good read and makes me want to go live in a Villa in Tuscany. ( )

Okay book. Loved her first book. All the rest have been disappointing. ( )

As with Under the Tuscan Sun, I want to like Women in Sunlight better than I do. The ideas of reinvention at any age and the strength of friendships between women appeal to me. Unfortunately, the story itself seems to drag. At times, it is confusing because of the number of characters and back stories. At times, it is a little too idyllic for my taste. Everything seems to come or resolve itself too easily.
