My Amalfi Coast is a loving memoir of the place Amanda called home for so many years, and a guide packed with insider's tips on where to eat, stay, shop and visit. Amanda takes us to the very heart of a region where the splendour of the scenery is more than matched by the warmth and charm of the people. 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 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.
