Enjoyable but not well developed
I bought this book because I was going to be in a play with Italian characters and I wanted to get the accents down right. The reader is very good and I would buy something read by her again. The story is very sweet but this book is light and a little fluffy even though it deals with quite a few serious subjects. The Christian theme is not mentioned and faith plays a very small role in the whole book. I felt that far too much time was spent on the girls before they met their prospective heros so that the romance seemed rushed. Mitchell does do a good job with historical detail although she is not correct in the Author's Note which tells more about the 1918 backround. (The Author's Note is not part of the audio addition.) The author's light style suited her book "She Walks With Beauty," but does not quite suit this which should have been better developed. It is a shame she did not have an extra 100 pages to expand.

A wonderful historical romance
We go back to a time when immigrants where full of hope that thier dreams will come true. Three young Italian women who have nothing in common forge a friendship whil working at a dressmakers shop. Each one's story is wonderfully portrayed and shows several sides to life at that time. It also shows how each one approaches to romance.
