    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....

    If you could sum up The Shoemaker's Wife in three words, what would they be?

    Love family country


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

    Sarah's Key. I couldn't put it down. I like the independent stories going along with the main story.


    What does Orlagh Cassidy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She was marvelous! I loved the accents. I really believed the characters and their feelings and personalities were obvious.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent narrator!
