950 s at least parents who are proud of their daughter s accomplishments and want her happiness even if it is not what tradition demands In the end Lucia must compromise I ll let you decide if it is a happy one or not I don t think 40 plus years working in a department store is happiness The book focuses on the happysad events of one or two years of life with the mink coat symbolizing that time Lucia even says that she wears the coat because it is her life s story Life isn t about a short time with decisions that decide the future The future is chronically changing because of our decisions even in our middle age The writing kept me decisions even in our middle age The writing kept me the book but it lacks the personal values I hold as a person This will definitely go into my favorites bookshelf I thoroughly enjoyed this story Although funny and heartwarming most of the time the story did have some very sad moments but isn t that how life is anyway Lucia Sartori is the kind of leading female character I adore She is strong willed with the courage to step outside of the stereotypical gender role boundaries of the 1950s specially in a Catholic Italian home Lucia is the only daughter in a family of in a Catholic Italian home Lucia is the only daughter in a family of children As the girl her role is to look after her brothers and help her mother with keeping the family home in order until she meets the right man and marries At which time she will be expected to move into his family home and continue her domestic responsibilities for her new family However Lucia at age 25 is a seamstress for the customs department of a big NYC department store She is not only a skilled worker but she likes the freedoms of being a single working woman who loves her ob In the 1950s this is euivalent to being an old spinster But she is true to herself and lives her life as so My daughter read this book along with me and she too loved it We both agreed that we felt like we were in the Sartori home as part of the famiglia Adriana Trigiani does such a great ob conveying that sense of the reader being part of an era gone Kudos to Mrs Trigiani on a wonderful book Thank you for letting me and my daughter be part of the Sartoris if only for a couple of weeks Immediately

I HATED THE FRAME STORY THE 
hated the frame story The character Kit is a struggling playwright living in Greenwich Village who ventures up to the apartment of the aged but elegant Aunt Lu and has tea while listening to her story which is the basis of the book My dislike of the frame only got worse when it finally reappeared after no mention of it throughout Lucia s story at the end of the book The characters including the old Lucia are flat and there is very little to connect them to the rest of the storyLucia s story told in first person at first engaged me uite a bit I know very little about fashion New York City the 1950s and the life of Italian immigrant families yet I found myself interested in all of these I was enthusiastic when Lucia breaks off her engagement and her role as a traditional Italian girl choosing instead to continue her career as a seamstress working for an up and coming designer in the customs department of a swanky department store I thought Like her only read about in the society pages Forced to choose between duty to her family and her own dreams Lucia finds herself in the midst of a sizzling scandal in which secrets are revealed her beloved career is eopardized and the Sartoris' honor is teste. ,
This book started strong and kept me going through the middle It is a believable tale of a close Italian family and a passionate young Italian girl The family goes through all kinds of life changing events together and I love how they all react and then move on together Then the book takes a left turn from normal good and bad life events and starts together Then the book takes a left turn from normal good and bad life events and starts beating the hell out of the main character taking away everything that she cares about and then letting her live for others and not be able to follow her own dreams for the rest of her life The author s weak attempt at giving the character happy ending with a date with her old PostgreSQL Server Programming - Second Edition jilted ex boyfriend does not even start to make up for it Also the character is a career oriented ambitious girl in a time when that was uncommon Making her end up alone unmarried and unable to do anything but care for her sick family member for 20 yearsust looks like she is being punished for her progressive ideals I give the first half of this book 4 stars and the second half 1 star I loved "this book This was my first Adriana Trigiani book and definitely will not be my "book This was my first Adriana Trigiani book and definitely will not be my Lucia was such a beautiful character that I absolutely fell in love with The time the location the Italian cultureit all weaved together to make a story that ust resonated in me I loved the loyalty and love the family showed each other and the way they recovered and got stronger after setbacks Even though she was a minor character I have to say Rosemary was also one of my favorites What a sweet girl who really came into her element throughout the storyI listened to this one on audio and thought that the reader
