This is an interesting book that delves into the psyche of a few of the main characters. I especially like the musings of Antonio Grasso and his feeling for his wife of 50 years. His constant acts of love for her, when all she thinks about is an old love from Italy, are amazing. Antonio fell in love with Maddalena the first time he saw her, and that love never falters. I did not like the younger son, Frankie. He is a weak and dependent individual. The only daughter, Prima, must face her own demons when she is no longer in charge of everyone's lives and must depend on her family. The cloud over the death of the older son, Tony, leaves an untold story. I really felt the characters anguish and pleasure in the many pages of preparing for the trip to Italy. The trip seemed a let down, since all the discoveries happened before the trip.
