The last time I was in the library, I discovered that one of my favorite authors had written a new book that I had not yet read! What a wonderful discovery!! The author is Adriana Trigiani and the book is “All the Stars in the Heavens.”
Trigiani’s books all center around families with Italian roots. One series has a woman pharmacist as the main character. She discovers she is Italian and begins a search into her family history. Another series is about an Italian family in New York City who makes custom, handcrafted shoes. The latest book is about a young Italian girl who comes to the United States to join a monastery, but she is not allowed to take her final vows. Instead, she is sent to Los Angeles to become secretary to the actress, Loretta Young, during the golden years of cinema. (1930’s – 1940’s) and on into the beginning of radio dramas and television.
Trigiani tells a good story! The last book was a bit slower at the beginning. But, I kept at it and by the end, had found it delightful!
Check out Trigiani in the “T” section of fiction. You won’t regret it.
Thanks for reading….Deb Egeland
