This novel is a love story and the saga of the lives and families of the main characters, a young couple named Enza and Ciro. They are from the Italian Alps and immigrate to America through Ellis Island around the turn of the century (1900). The author uses figurative language that is precise and evocative. Here is a quote from the book describing the Alpine air: "That blue air. The night air as rich as a treasure chest of lapis, shimmering, inviting, and made smooth over time." This novel will make you feel sad and glad.
