The Shoemaker’s Wife by Adriana Trigiani
The popular community reading event, The Big Read, returns with Adriana Trigiani’s The Shoemaker’s Wife as the featured book for 2013.
Inspired by her own family history, Adriana Trigiani creates the unforgettable characters of Ciro and Enza to tell the saga of two star-crossed lovers whose journeys take them from the mountains in Italy to their new home in America. More than a love story, this novel captures the immigrant experience of the early 1900s.
