Leaving their comfortable life in Canada behind, Edward, Diane and their two children, Amanda and Colin, embark on an adventure beyond their wildest imaginings. In order to follow Ed’s dream of improving his technical skills on the double bass with a world-renowned teacher, they move to Italy for the better part of a year. Before their departure, Diane’s aunt gives her a diary in which she faithfully records their daily struggles, triumphs, failures and hilarious encounters.

Written as a series of diary entries and letters to friends and family at home, Letters from Italy is a warm-hearted, intimate account of a life-changing experience.

Diane Seufert Tait is a professional violinist, a gardener and practicing clinical herbalist. She lives with her husband Edward in a small village northeast of Toronto.
