What I am reading right now...

The Shoemaker's Wife by Adriana Trigiani is a story I cannot do justice by simply writing about what happens in the book.  This book starts in the Italian Alps before WWI with two brother's orphaned at a convent.  Ciro and Eduardo do well by the nuns bur are eventually sent away. Eduardo to become a priest in Rome. Ciro to America.  Shortly before leaving Ciro meets Enza from a neighboring mountain village.  Even in their brief meeting Enza has a special feeling about Ciro. 

The book follows the highs and lows of Ciro and Enza's lives.  Ultimately it is a love story, however the book touches on the immigration struggles in America and the developing Industrial nation like an historical fiction.  The themes are family, love, and heritage.
