Along the way we are invited to share Amanda’s own story: the holiday that led to a love affair, which in turn inspired her to trade a glamorous fashion career in Florence for bare feet, a bikini and a beautiful man in the jewel-like town of Positano. We meet the family who take her into their home and their beachside restaurant, where she waits tables and rubs shoulders with the patrons – an eclectic mix of celebrities, tourists and local eccentrics. We follow Amanda as she becomes a mother, business owner, and bona fide local, before finally making the decision to return to Australia.
Beautifully photographed by Carla Coulson, My Amalfi Coast is a warm and intimate account of one of the world’s most spectacular coastal regions, and of a culture that knows how to appreciate the things that truly matter in life.
“Open up this work of love on any page, and you’ll smell the fresh grilled mozzarella on lemon leaves and feel the warmth of the Neapolitan sun on your face. Lucky for Amanda to have loved this fairytale life, and lucky for us to be able to enjoy it vicariously through her vivid descriptions and the gorgeous photos.”
Patricia Schultz, author of 1000 Places to See Before You Die ( Workman Publishing)
