When Enzo, a local villager, shoots an illegal immigrant from his bedroom window one night it triggers a series of events that embroil old and young, rich and poor, native and foreign.

Enjoyable and provocative…romantic and realistic’ – Emily Rhodes, Spectator

I absolutely LOVED The Three Graces. It’s about Tuscany and Umbria and Italy and immigration and ageing and generational divides and art and beauty and music and suffering and love and joy and life. It’s bursting with compassion and wisdom’ – Christina Patterson

In the Tuscan hilltop village of Santorno, the setting for Amanda Craig’s entertaining and bracing new novel, the Three Graces of her title are preparing for a spring wedding. Adorning this idyll Craig’s Graces – Ruth, Marta and Diana – are a trio of elderly expatriates with a total of “four breasts, five eyes and three hip replacements” between them… witty, sharp-eyed and ridiculously enjoyable’ – Christobel Kent, Guardian
