Italy, NYC, sewing, the costume department at the Metropolitan Opera, travel, true love, what's not to love!!!
I especially loved that this book is not all about conquering hardship, well, at least not extreme hardship like miserable nuns and horrible runs of bad luck. These characters had challenges to overcome but they also had great good fortune and strong family bonds, even when the family was created and not blood bound.
I was reminded a lot of Maeve Binchy's wonderful stories of life and living. A very easy, warm and fuzzy read! Loved it!!!
