    • Trigiani is an author that has come highly recommended to me ever since I decided to try reading historical fiction and after reading my first book by her, I can definitely see the appeal There is something utterly effortless about her style, this was almost 500 pages and I read it in twenty four hours if that tells you anything I just found it very easy to be caught up in Chi Chi and Tony s lives and just had to know what would happen to them.This begins when Tony and Chi Chi are both te Trigia [...]


    • Research, researchThere is a scene at the beginning of the third chapter that describes the Jersey Shore in 1938 The author describes blankets, picnic baskets and transistor radios Really Did the beachgoers jump in a time machine to the 1950s to grab those radios This is a work of historical fiction how did it get past the editors But wait It gets worse The author refers to Sailors as midshipmen during a scene in San Diego In the U.S Navy, Midshipmen are students at the Naval Acade Research, res [...]


    • Adriana Trigiani s novels are like comfort food to me I always love the stories, characters, setting everything But this story fell a little flat for me I loved the premise two young singers trying to make careers during the Big Band Era, but the characters frustrated me to no end Tony Arma is the stereotypical Italian man and Chi Chi Donatelli the stereotypical Italian woman I did like Chi Chi a little because she had glimpses of standing up for herself, but her relationship with To Adriana Tri [...]


    • The worst Adriana Trigiani book I have ever read I am totally disappointed, and expected much better This book was boring, wordy, redundant, and could have gotten to the point much sooner I only finished the book to see how it ended, and the ending fell completely flat Adriana Trigiani is one of my favorite authors, but her last couple of books make me wonder if I should stop reading and looking forward to a new book by her.


    • Thanks to and St Martin s Press for this ARC My opinion is my own Brava, Adriana Trigiani, you ve done it again with a wonderful book First of all, let me start with the cover art of this book I usually love the covers but this one surprised me It does not fit to me the character of Chi Chi to me The hair style throws me off because of the style strange looking braids and not very Italian looking I always love her books and this one is no exception with a close knit Italia Thanks to and St Marti [...]



    • That blurb sure makes it seem like these two meet one summer and fall in love No they did not.ChiChi wants to become a singer, and she tries everything to make it happen She writes her own song, she records albums in her garage She is driven and smart.Severio becomes a singer even if that was maybe not the road he really wanted to take But well on it he wants and of everything.They meet in the summer of 1938, and then go back at doing their own things Their story will span until That blurb sure [...]
