"Davide brought me back to Umbria, Italy, first on the top of Mount Subasio and then in area around Assisi. Since I visit this area on a regular basis, I was drawn to "Davide". The author, Roger Pepper, accurately describes the area. Took me right back there. This is a book of goodness. Reminds me of the books by Alexander McCall Smith. While there is an Angel involved and a transformation of David to Davide.... who takes on a St. Francis persona, I did not find it a religious book. I do NOT like religious books. This book was believable....as in enjoying a fairy tale as a child. I found it entertaining. Animal lovers will especially like this book."
