Publisher's Summary

Like threads of delicate gold, the lives of two young Italian lovers, Enza Ravanelli, a practical girl born into poverty, and Ciro Amadei, a dreamer raised in a convent orphanage, are woven together in this lush, epic novel set against the landscape of world events in the first half of the twentieth century. Like the times they were born into, Enza and Ciro's story is filled with surprising twists and turns. Together, they embrace the promise of a new and better life as they attempt to survive by the labour of their own hands.

A charming, story

Would you listen to The Shoemaker's Wife again? Why?

No, I would rather read it because I found the narrator annoying.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the characters and the descriptions of the settings - I was transported into the Italian Alps and I loved it!

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Her Italian accents were annoying. She mispronounced quite a few words which I thought was really irritating.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I cried in quite a few of the sad bits - I had fallen in love with the main character, Ciro.

Any additional comments?

I would highly recommend the book as it is a really lovely story.
