This novel sounds captivating and wonderful. The era and the characters. saubleb(at)gmail(dot)com

I'm very interested in this book. All of my grandparents were born in Sicily and were there when Mt. Etna erupted. They came to the US between 1915 and 1920. My mom who is 91 would enjoy reading this book very much and I would, too! Thank you for the giveaway.

The setting intrigues me very much as well as the storyline and timeline.

The cultural changes that Angela faces sound very intriguing. Thanks for the giveaway.
