Description
"Mi Gusto Questo Gusto, " cries out Renato Tizzoni. "I want to taste this taste." For the waterworks man from the Tuscan town of Sant'Angelo D'Asso, the world is a rich and vibrant place. But when tragedy strikes, this passionate man suddenly faces the terrible realization that "nothing tastes of anything anymore." Prompted by a promise made to him in a dream, Renato searches to rediscover the flavor of life. Listening to the individual stories of the people in his village, his personal desire becomes a mission, and a strange twist of fate sends Renato on a journey to the Vatican, where he searches for ways to save his marriage, his family, and even his endangered little village.

Beautifully told, and sure to touch every reader's heart, Renato's Luck resonates with the triumph of truth: that while confronting the harsh realities of an impermanent world, life will always seek to be reborn, bringing with it the gift of happiness.
