I didn't read all of the stories, there were some that didn't seem interesting as I glazed past them. I did feel it was kind of cop out to arrange the stories in alphabetical order instead of territory or theme or even year written.

Personal favorites, "Women of the Shadows" by Ann Cornelisen and "The Art of Arrangement" from "That Fine Italian Hand" by Paul Hofmann. Both stories focus on the strength of Italians and their ability to survive despite their surroundings. I know that they may seem negative as the plot unfolds but focusing on the characters and how they overcome obstacles it what made me turn each page.
