Armchair travelers who would enjoy a light, summer read set in Italy, this book is for you. It is a story that is told with heart and humor.
The (very) small town of Prometto, Italy has a big problem. The water pipes need work and work costs money. Unfortunately for the mayor, the patron saint of pipes (who knew that there was one? Not me.) is not answering the mayor’s prayer. The town can’t pay the prospective bill and he doesn’t want the town’s citizens to be relocated. What is to be done? Well, a plan is hatched. I’ll just say that it involves a celebrity actor and maybe a movie. Will things work out? What will happen along the way? Pick this one up to find out. It is a pleasurable g-rated story.
Note: I enjoyed the small drawings that headed up each chapter.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Atria books for this title. All opinions are my own.
