Beautifully written book. I loved it. Def. a keeper. I'm buying it in the future.A beautiful love story that will keep you on your toes. This book will sweep you to the 20th century. I was always drawn to Victorian things so I really enjoyed this book. Five Stars. P.S This book is emotionally gripping I almost cried at the end !

I really liked this book. I later read the author's non-fiction book about her grandmothers. This book really comes from their experiences.

This is her best book yet, especially if you are an Italophile and just love everything Italian.

The book was okay – but not one of my favorites.

What a great story and so beautifully told. It made me laugh, it made me cry, it made me look at life and what's important to me from a different perspective and when I closed the last page I felt like I'd said goodbye to a dear friend. One of the two best I've read all year. Do yourself a favour and read this book. Can't wait for the next one from Adriana

sentimental without being sappy ... a truly beautiful love story of friendship and family, courage and perseverance, faith, and becoming American

I wanted to get into it, but I couldn't. It just dragged.

Excellent book - two points of view of the main characters. The story begins in Italy and then the characters both immigrate to the U.S. Read to discover what happens on their journey.

I read this on a whim and was pleasantly surprised by it. I enjoy epic love novels that weave historical fiction into the plot. This book doesn't disappoint on those two fronts.

All her books are fabulous...favorite so far is "Lucia Lucia". She writes with such compassion and you actually feel that you are there. After reading some of her books I have learned about the shoe industry and the clothing industry. Cannot put her books down.
