SALUTE ("cheers" in Italian) for RESTORED IN TUSCANY
“What begins as a love letter to Italy transforms ever so gently into a beautifully calibrated story of change, a seemingly simple journey—the awakening of the body, the mind, and the human spirit. In the wise, capable hands of Angela Correll, every page delivers another lesson through a slice of idyllic Tuscan life.”

—LINDA BRUCKHEIMER, novelist, philanthropist, and preservationist
“This is a terrific book. Angela Correll has given us an insightful, funny, and meaningful look at what it really takes to rebuild an ancient abode in a hilltop town in Italy: a very big heart.”

—BRET LOTT, New York Times bestselling author
“Restored in Tuscany is a delightful and meaningful read. As I was caught up in the story of the restoration of an ancient building, I was also challenged by the possibilities of restoration in my own heart. May those who read this book find the flourishing life God has designed for every one of us.”

—TODD HARPER, cofounder of Generous Giving
I was inspired to look for beauty in all of life as Angela’s words painted images I could taste, see, smell, and feel. Her life’s ups and downs and her celebrations and sorrows became gifts of healing for my pain and gratitude for my peace. Her mom was my mom. Her fears my fears. Her joys my joys.”

—BOYD BAILEY, author, founder of Wisdom Hunters
“This book is an invitation to dream amid adversity and is infused with truth, vulnerability, and wisdom. Angela’s words invite us to take courage for our lives as we look over her shoulder and through her heart as we pursue our passion and potential.”
