Giveaway: The Shoemaker's Wife by Adriana Trigiani (CLOSED)




To celebrate the release of the paperback edition of The Shoemaker's Wife by Adriana Trigiani, the great people at Harper are sponsoring a giveaway. This is my absolute favorite book of the year. I read The Shoemaker's Wife when it first came out in April and you can read my review of the book here. Be sure to come back later this week when I post about my meeting Adriana Trigiani - she is speaking at the local bookstore tonight and I cannot wait!!!

Brief Synopsis of The Shoemaker's Wife: The fateful first meeting of Enza and Ciro takes place amid the haunting majesty of the Italian Alps at the turn of the last century. Still teenagers, they are separated when Ciro is banished from his village and sent to hide in New York's Little Italy, apprenticed to a shoemaker, leaving a bereft Enza behind. But when her own family faces disaster, she, too, is forced to emigrate to America. Though destiny will reunite the star-crossed lovers, it will, just as abruptly, separate them once again—sending Ciro off to serve in World War I, while Enza is drawn into the glamorous world of the opera . . . and into the life of the international singing sensation Enrico Caruso. Still, Enza and Ciro have been touched by fate—and, ultimately, the power of their love will change their lives forever.

A riveting historical epic of love and family, war and loss, risk and destiny, inspired by the author's own family history, The Shoemaker's Wife is the novel Adriana Trigiani was born to write.
