Adriana Trigiani has been one of my favorite authors ever since Big Stone Gap. She comes through for us once again with Very Valentine. Valentine has worked for years with her grandmother, making custom wedding shoes. The business is now in trouble and Valentine has to dig deep in her creative reserves to figure out how to save the century-old tradition. A new romance and a trip to Italy help her to adjust her perspective. This story of a woman coming into her own in the midst of a wonderful and sometimes overwhelming Italian family is sure to please.
