I'm afraid I'd have trouble following this one as well, but if the language was as rich, colorful and textured as your review, it might be worth it :)

Thank you for your detailed review! I love that the descriptions were beautiful and that we could hear and almost taste everything that happened at the dinner party. However, I agree that it would be better if there was a family tree. I definitely would have lost track off all the Italian names.
