This is the delightful tale of Renato and his friends, family and fellow villagers, in a small village in Tuscany that is soon to be flooded to make a new dam. Renato feels that life has lost its flavour, and is pondering his future when a dream makes him realise that he must do something to change this.

It is a lovely story and the narrator really makes you feel that you know the colourful characters and can identify with how their lives are changing. It has the expected happy ending and is in all a satisfying read.

If I have one small criticism of the book, it is that on occasions you do wonder where the dialogue is all going. And at times I became impatient for Renato to get on and do what he has to do in order to make the change to his and everyone's lives. But this is a small criticism - it really is a very good book, and one I recommend.
