Book to be discussed is THE SHOEMAKER’S WIFE by Adriana Trigiani. Refreshments courtesy of the Friends of the Library. All welcome.
High in the Italian Alps at the turn of the twentieth century, Ciro, a strapping mountain boy, meets Enza, a practical beauty. But when scandal rocks Ciro’s tiny village, unbeknownst to Enza, he is sent to hide in America.
When disaster strikes Enza’s family, she, too, is forced to go to America.Ciro and Enza build fledgling lives—until fate intervenes and reunites them. But it is too late: Ciro has volunteered to serve in World War I and Enza finds success in the costume department of the Metropolitan Opera House. Over time, these star-crossed lovers meet and separate, until the power of their love changes both of their lives forever.
