Publisher's Summary

Lucia Sartori is the beautiful 25-year-old daughter of a traditional Italian immigrant family in 1950s Greenwich Village. She boldly becomes an apprentice for a ready-to-wear clothing designer at B. Altman's famous department store. Though she is sought after as a potential wife by the best Italian families, she works hard and remains as devoted to her career as to her family. But when a handsome stranger comes to the store and catches her eye, it is love at first sight for both of them. First, though, he must win over her family and make a proper offer of marriage. Their love affair takes an unexpected turn as secrets are revealed, Lucia's family honor is tested, and Lucia's own reputation becomes the center of a sizzling scandal.

What a wonderful book!

I so enjoyed listenting to this book!! The story is well written, and keeps you wanting more with every chapter. It reminds you that every elderly person was once your age and that they have stories to tell. Take time to talk with your elders, you just might be amazed by what they have to say!!

not as enamored as other reviewers

I didn't find this so predictable or superficial as to fail to complete it, but it did not grab me. I bought it based on other reviews, and want to suggest that it's not a hugely literary read, imho.
