A charming, story
No, I would rather read it because I found the narrator annoying.
I loved the characters and the descriptions of the settings - I was transported into the Italian Alps and I loved it!
Her Italian accents were annoying. She mispronounced quite a few words which I thought was really irritating.
I cried in quite a few of the sad bits - I had fallen in love with the main character, Ciro.
I would highly recommend the book as it is a really lovely story.
