"No one ever reads just one of Trigiani’s wonderfully quirky tales. Once you pick up the first, you are hooked.” —BookPage

    " Adriana Trigiani writes interestingly about her relationships with both her grandmothers. I found it of interest since much of the time period corresponded with my own life and my grandmothers, one a child immigrant and one a first-generation. "

    " It was interesting to read about the author's grandmothers, especially since I've read some ofthe author's fiction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Katie | 5/10/2011

    " I found this book hard to get into. The book starts with sequential life events of her grandmothers, which frankly isn't really that interesting. Overall it is a good book to read on and off but I never really found a solid story line. "
