Publisher's Summary

Lucia Sartori is the beautiful 25-year-old daughter of a traditional Italian immigrant family in 1950s Greenwich Village. She boldly becomes an apprentice for a ready-to-wear clothing designer at B. Altman's famous department store. Though she is sought after as a potential wife by the best Italian families, she works hard and remains as devoted to her career as to her family. But when a handsome stranger comes to the store and catches her eye, it is love at first sight for both of them. First, though, he must win over her family and make a proper offer of marriage. Their love affair takes an unexpected turn as secrets are revealed, Lucia's family honor is tested, and Lucia's own reputation becomes the center of a sizzling scandal.

    "loved it all"

    I loved everything about this book, from the unusual setting during the 1950s to the dynamic of the Italian familiy to the focus on fashion. Furthermore, the performance was very good and while the reader carried different inflections for the various characters, she was definitely reading more than acting. It wasn't too over to the top as some books are.

    "Lovely read"

    I have found a new favorite author. If you love stories about the characters in families, or you love a life story that relates to the time it was referring to....it's not all fast movement and flashy. It's life, and living it everyday and unexpected events happening like they do to all of us. How this family responded. I love a life story, I get lost in them and these so heartfelt. You may laugh and cry. It is a lovely read. Sometimes that is exactly what I need. Thank you, Ms. Trigiani, Ms. Campbell, and Audible.

    "What A Wonderful Listen"

    If you even have one drop of Italian blood in you or if you know someone who does. you are going to love this story. The reader does an excellent job of relaying the essence of this fabulous book. I loved it!

    "lite and tasty"

    I've read Trigiani's Big Stone Gap books, and I didn't like this one quite as much. The reader is good, and it's a enjoyable story -- even moving, at times -- but it felt a bit like a fairy tale, whereas the Big Stone Gap characters are more grounded, more real. I did enjoy the setting (NYC in the 1950s).

    "Great characters"

    Although I am not Italian but having italian in-laws, this book captures the true italian feeling and manorisms acurately, even today. Although set in 50s Greenwich village and a lighter story line, it is a truly enjoyable way to pass the time. It also captures the time and feel, I think, very accurately. You should really enjoy the narrator and the story. Very enjoyable
