Now an HBO film starring Academy Award winners Maggie Smith and Chris Cooper...

Mrs. Emily Delahunty-a mysterious and not entirely trustworthy former madam-quietly runs a pensione in the Italian countryside and writes romance novels while she muses on her checkered past. Then one day her world is changed forever as the train she is riding in is blown up by terrorists. Taken to a local hospital to recuperate, she befriends the other survivors-an elderly English general, an American child, and a German boy-and takes them all to convalesce at her villa, with unforeseen results.

"[My House in Umbria] reminds you what good reading is all about." (Anne Tyler, Chicago Sun-Times)
