Six years ago, Frances Mayes took a risk and pursued a dream. Against the advice of her family, she gave up her life savings to buy a dilapidated villa in Tuscany. Frances and her partner Ed renovated their new home and she wrote a #1 best-seller, Under the Tuscan Sun, about the experience. Her love affair with Italy continues in her latest book, Bella Tuscany: The Sweet Life in Italy.

Tune in to find out how Frances got the nerve to leave a comfortable life here in the States and start a new life in unfamiliar surroundings.
