The Shoemaker's Wife by Adriana Trigiani

November 20, 2012
7:00 pm

An old-fashioned, romantic tale of two star-tangled lovers. Beginning in the Italian Alps, the story travels by various routes to New York's Little Italy, a Hoboken factory, backstage at the Metropolitan Opera, Minnesota's Iron Range and the trenches of France. Trigiani is a master of palpable and visual detail. She brings to vivid life the terrible ocean crossings, the tribulation of getting through immigration control at Ellis Island, and the whole look, feel and material reality of the New World. You may remember this author from the bestselling Big Stone Gap series.
