Review: The Shoemaker’s Wife by Adriana Trigiani

Enza and Ciro first meet in the majestic setting of the Italian Alps in the tiny village of Enza’s childhood. After sharing a rare night of heart-felt conversation and a first kiss, Ciro is forced to leave Italy after catching the local priest in a scandal. Tragically, he doesn’t even have time to tell Enza where he is going or why.

Years later the two meet again, unexpectedly, in America where Ciro is a shoemaker’s apprentice and Enza a worker in a factory in Hoboken. But it’s too late: Ciro is leaving to serve in World War I and Enza is about to begin a glamorous career as a seamstress for the Metropolitan Opera. But not even war can keep these two fated lovers apart forever.

Vivid. Beautiful. Atmospheric. Lovely. Gripping. Wonderful. I loved this brand new book from best-selling author Adriana Trigiani. The prose is gorgeous and the story a sweeping, grand tale of love and family so full of depth that readers will be hard-pressed to put it down. Trigiani’s characters are splendidly real and endearing, the descriptions of settings alluring and the road to love heart-aching. And the book itself is so pretty, the cover a photo that appeared in the September 1949 issue of Harper’s Bazaar. A must-read!
