review 1: I have thoroughly loved two other books by this author. This one took me ages to get interested in. More than half the book, probably. But once I did I liked it. Good plot, good pacing, good dialogue, interesting and likable characters. As always, Mitchell has done her research and presents more historical information, just like in her other books, that should not be forgotten. So in some ways, she has the heart of an historian. I would recommend this book, with the caveat that it is written more in the style and pace of a book polished young ladies would read in the forties.
review 2: I was a bit skeptical when I picked up this book to read. I had just finished another Siri Mitchell book that didn't quite meet my expectations so I was unsure how I would like t
... morehis. However from the first page I was hooked. This was one of the finest books I have read in a long while. I really appreciated the style that it was written in, and could image that someone was reading me a bedside story because of the omniscient comments that appeared throughout the book. I haven't read anything in that style before, but Siri did it superbly.One thing I can count on when I pick up one of Siri's books is that the amount of historical research that she puts into it will give that extra depth and atmosphere that draws you in. I was starting to believe that I was an Italian immigrant living in the North End myself.The story itself was cleverly done intertwining the characters lives. There was no shortage of knights in shining armor to dream about or protagonists to cheer for, cry with, and just simply love.I don't think I can recommend this book enough. If I had the time I would pick it up and read it all over again. less

Love this book! Great Italian, Sicilian history that is not often talked about!

The story of 3 Italian girls growing up during 1918.
