    The fateful first meeting of Enza and Ciro takes place amid the haunting majesty of the Italian Alps at the turn of the last century. Still teenagers, they are separated when Ciro is banished from his village and sent to hide in New York's Little Italy, apprenticed to a shoemaker, leaving a bereft Enza behind. But when her own family faces disaster, she, too, is forced to emigrate to America. Though destiny will reunite the star-crossed lovers, it will, just as abruptly, separate them once again....

    Richard L. Carroll says: "Great life story-great narrator"
    "Love Story!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Shoemaker's Wife to be better than the print version?

    Did not read the print version


    What other book might you compare The Shoemaker's Wife to and why?

    Similar to other Trigiani novels but apparently much was based on her ancestors' story.


    Which character – as performed by Orlagh Cassidy – was your favorite?

    not one in particular - did think the accent sounded authentic though


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyed the vivid descriptions of scenery and the Met.
