"...I had forgotten all about the prediction when, on a beautiful summer's evening in 2004, I caught a glimpse of Andrea on the square in Montemerano, and instantly knew that my fate had caught up with me.  I didn't know a word of Italian, but in disregard of all reason and under the sole command of my heart, I went back to Copenhagen, struggled to learn Italian, gave notice at my job and sold my flat, car and belongings..."

"Andrea made his living from being the local carpenter and joiner, he restored houses and antiques, and in his free time he applied his artistic talents to making the most beautiful cutting boards and furniture.  Samina didn't fall in love just with the man, but with the Aladdin's cave of beautiful hand tools, antiques and curiosities, and exquisite unique creations..."
