The review of this Book prepared by Delight Comphel

This is a fabulous book about the lives of a dozen characters whose paths cross in an Italian class. These people are from different social standings and backgrounds, but through their love for Italian has bound them together. I loved loved loved this book. It was an absolute close second to "Tara Road". The characters are real, the writing is clear and easy to follow. This book will suck you in and won't let you go until it's done with you. A super book.
