it was amazing
Read in March, 2012

A beautifully written book about Mr. Paolicelli's search for his roots. I had the honor of hearing Paul Paolicelli speak about his experience and I knew I had to read his book. Having grandparents who came to America from Italy, it was easy to relate to his frustrations, little triumphs and contact with family members that he did not know. It was also interesting to realize that many of us hold the customs of Italy so dear and pass these down to the next generation. His book is not just filled with his search, but also the history of a few areas in Italy. I think anyone who had family who courageously came to America would enjoy reading Paul Paolicelli's account of his search. I am anxiously awaiting his next book.
