They settled in Roseto, Pennsylvania, and re-created their former lives in their new home-town to the very last detail of who lived next door to whom. The hardworking Castellucas work the land outside Roseto. Nella, eighteen, aspires to a genteel life "in town," far from the rigours of farm life. But Nella's dreams of making her own fortune shift when she meets and falls in love with Renato Lanzara, a wordly, handsome, devil-may-care poet who has a way with words that makes him irresistible. Their friendship ignites into a passionate affair that Nella is certain will lead to marriage. When he disappears without explanation, Nella is left with a shattered heart. Five years later, Renato's sudden return to Roseto, just one week before Nella's wedding, leaves her and all the townsfolk shaken. For although Renato has chosen a path very different from Nella's own, they are fated to live together, in the same town, for the rest of their lives.Hide synopsis

I could not put this book down until I finished it. It was so well written. As a first generation Italian/American I felt this book was a true story. Trigiani always makes you feel like you are right in the place she is writing about.
Tragini is brilliant, down to earth and very Italian. Any Italian or one interested in Italian culture, especially as it related to immigrants to America, will love this story. Her writing is always homey and close, completely bringing you into this family with its loves and pains.
