Most of Trigiani's books have a strong woman as the central character, Valentine is a strong character. It made me want to listen whenever I had a second. This was a great book. I have read most of her books & love them all. I am reading "Rococo" now. I love the way that she writes. It makes me want to be Italian.
I loved the holidays, Her writing made me feel as if I was right there around the dinner table with them.
This book made me both laugh & cry. The characters are great.
This was such a good book. I would listen to it again. I like the history that is in the book. Such a good book.
This book made me cry at the end of the book. Need a box of Kleenex.
I loved listening to the history. Such a good book. Dan Brown really did his research.

Afterr listening to it, it really made me think of how hard it was for ewveryone back after the war.
The beginning of the book:Boys, let us get up a club. With those words, six restless young men raided the linens at a friend’s mansion, pulled pillowcases over their heads, hopped on horses, and cavorted through the streets of Pulaski, Tennessee. The six friends named their club the Ku Klux Klan, and, all too quickly, their club grew into the self-proclaimed Invisible Empire with secret dens spread across the South.This is the story of how a secret terrorist group took root in America’s democracy. Filled with chilling and vivid personal accounts unearthed from oral histories, congressional documents, and diaries, it is a book to read and remember.The Ku Klux Klan arose after the Civil War and quickly became a terrorist organization spreading fear and hatred throughout the United States. This book traces the entire history of the KKK from its beginning as a "social club" to the modern day. Details about the founders and other members are given. Raids are described in enough detail to give the reader chills while imagining what it would be like to live through the terror. The book is well-researched and presents a number of people giving personal accounts about the impact of the KKK on their lives. I thought the book was well done.
It ranks very high in the books I have listened to.
I also have MS. Listening to the book made me realize that other people have the same issues that I have. This is a book for not just people with MS but also for Care-givers. It is a well written book.
Worth listening to.
I would listen to it again. It was very well written.
The story was well written. I liked the detail that went into the book.
I really wanted to listen to the book in one sitting but I did not have the time to listen to it all because it is a very long book.
I read the book then watched the show. The show was just as good as the book. Both were very well done. I can't wait to listen to the second book.
Good read. I loved it & learned a lot about our dogs. Cesar's Way is was so handy. It made me look at the things that I was doing wrong with our dogs. I changed my actions right away & the dogs followed my lead me right away. They really wanted an Alpha in their lives. They are better behaved now. They sit & wait for their food now. Thanks for the help with our dogs. Very Educational.
Summary: He was a man who didn’t deserve a second chance... but he needed one. Emily and her husband, Sandy Portman, seemed to live a gracious if busy life in an old-world, Upper West Side apartment in the famous Dakota building. But one night on the way to meet Emily, Sandy dies in a tragic accident. The funeral isn't even over before Emily learns she is on the verge of being evicted from their apartment. But worse than the possibility of losing her home, Emily is stunned when she discovers that her marriage was made up of lies.
Suddenly, Emily is forced on a journey to find out who her husband really was... all the while feeling that somehow he isn't really gone. And what if he isn't?
Angry, hurt, and sometimes betrayed by loving memories of the man she lost, Emily finds comfort in a scruffy dog named Einstein. But is Einstein's seemingly odd determination that she save herself enough to make Emily confront her own past? Can he help her find a future - even after she meets a new man?
I loved the story of Einstein. I really make you think about a dogs life.
Einstein. I loved to hear the story from his point.
the end of the book. The whole thing was suspenseful.
