"There is little enough devotion in the world that we should be glad for it in whatever form it appears, and never mock it, or underestimate its depths."

Book review: An Italian Affair
I just finished reading An Italian Affair by Laura Fraser. It's a memoir/travel book where a woman who is recently divorced meets a married professor from France and begins an affair with him. They meet in different countries over the course of several years. Their relationship is interesting because it can't go anywhere and because the professor is kind of selfish and blunt.
It's a fun read because you feel like you are traveling while you're reading. The book reminded me a lot of Eat, Pray, Love because of the travel, romance, and adventures they have during their trips.
