The Shoemakers Wife
Reviewed by- Linda (2012/05/28, 04:50 AM)
Although this is a love story, itís also an immigrant story and one that shows the social and cultural changes brought about by WWI, especially as it pertains to the Italian immigrant experience. The story is about Enza and Ciro as they journey from the mountains of Italy to America to seek their individual fortunes. Both characters are easy to like and a pleasure to read about. Trigianiís writing style is unhindered, her descriptions rich and her characters fully developed, pulling the reader into both the characters lives and the era. The inspiration for this story springs from the authorís grandparentís immigration experience; the passion she feels towards this topic is palpableBack.
