In Suzanne Palmieri’s charming novel The Witch of Little Italy, you will be bewitched by the Amore women. When young Eleanor Amore finds herself pregnant, she returns home to her estranged family in the Bronx, called by the "Sight" they share, which now grows strong within her. She has only been back once before, when she was 10 years old, and while everyone else remembers that summer of sun-drenched beaches, laughter, and cartwheels, Eleanor can’t recall anything earlier than the moment she left the house on her last day there.
With her past now coming back to her in flashes, she becomes obsessed with recapturing those memories. Aided by her childhood sweetheart, she learns the secrets still haunting her magical family, secrets buried so deep no one knows how they began. In the process, she unlocks a mystery over 50 years old - The Day the Amores Died - and reveals once and for all a truth that will either heal or shatter the Amore clan.

Kept me entertained......
This was a good book - not great but good. The narration by Cassandra Campbell made it and the charm of the Italian aunts and New York home were very good; also the beach home was great too.
The sick boyfriend was really sick and there were parts that were tied up in family history that took a long time to uncover - lots of detail that was sometimes critical to the story but easy to miss. Felt like a long time waiting for things to happen in this book and not always sure where it was headed, but lacking true suspense.
I had this in my wish list for a long time and I'm glad I finally read it. A decent read though not sure I would recommend.....

I liked this book. I had to back it up...and give it a second listen. I was confused by some of the characters, not the main ones but names I couldn't figure out who they were. Then there was Liz. There is a mystery history here...and it takes it to the end of the book to find out what the heck happened. But I like the story and I like Cassandra Campbell's narration.
