  1. I read “The Gown” for this month’s topic. If you are a fan of historical fiction then this is a very good book!

  2. I’m listening to “Very Valentine” by Adriana Trigiani. It is the first book in the Valentine Trilogy. Here is a description from the back cover:
    The Angelini Shoe Company, one of the last family-owned businesses in Greenwich Village, has been making exquisite wedding shoes since 1903 but now teeters on the brink of financial collapse. To save their business from ruin, thirty-three-year-old Valentine Roncalli—apprentice to and granddaughter of master artisan Teodora Angelini—must bring the family’s old-world craftsmanship into the twenty-first century. Juggling her budding romance with dashing chef Roman Falconi, her duty to her family, and a design challenge presented by a prestigious department store, Valentine returns to Italy with her grandmother in a quest to build a pair of glorious shoes to beat their rivals. And in the course of discovering her true artistic voice and so much more in la bella Italia, Valentine will be turning her life and the business upside down in ways she never expected. It is a wonderful family saga centered around the shoe making business.
