I heart this book! It’s called Lucia Lucia by Adriana Trigiani. It takes you on a journey to the middle of Greenwich Village in the 1950s to an era when everyone knows their neighbors’ names and clothes are still made by hand. The main character’s name is Lucia Sartori; she’s 25; she has a great job working as a seamstress at a department store on Fifth Avenue. And she wants to have it all (both a career and a family) at a time when her traditional Italian family expects her to only choose the latter. This book is about Lucia’s struggle to figure out what, as well as who, she wants in her future. What a beautifully written page-turner full of such vivid characters!
