Reviews

"Within the pages of this novel, Trigiani's 10th, is a gloriously romantic yet sensible world that seamlessly blends practicality and beauty...built around the staggering cultural and social changes the war years swept in.... Trigiani's very best...exquisite writing and a story enriched by the power of abiding love." -- USA Today

"I've always loved reading Trigiani, but [this] is something totally new and completely wonderful: a rich, sweeping epic which tells the story of the women and men who built America dream by dream. If you're meeting her work for the first time, get ready for a lifelong love affair. Splendid." -- Kathryn Stockett, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Help

"The novel is a sweeping epic, but at its heart, it's a love story. It speaks to an era of possibilities." -- Providence Journal

"Trigiani's page-turning newest... is a sweeping saga... More than an epic romance, Trigiani's work pays homage to the tribulations of the immigrant experience, and the love that makes the journey and hardships worthwhile." -- Publishers Weekly

"This expansive epic, which seems tailor-made for a miniseries, manages to feel both old-fashioned and thoroughly contemporary...[an] irresistible love story." -- Booklist

"Trigiani's gift for using vivid details to create a strong sense of place and her warm affection for her characters will make this a satisfying read for her many fans." -- Library Journal

...an old-fashioned, romantic tale of two star-tangled lovers...but also a paean to artisanal work, food, friendship and family...Trigiani is a master of palpable and visual detail. -- Washington Post
