Like threads of delicate gold, the lives of two young Italian lovers, Enza Ravanelli, a practical girl born into poverty, and Ciro Amadei, a dreamer raised in a convent orphanage, are woven together in this lush, epic novel set against the landscape of world events in the first half of the 20th century. The Shoemaker's Wife spans two world wars, immigration, the birth of American manufacturing, the rigors of assimilation and the Great Depression.
