Kit lives by herself in an apartment, with "Aunt Lu", the landlord's "old maid" aunt upstairs. When Kit visits Lucia one day, she hears Lu's story. A story of an Italian-American girl in the 1950s, who wants more than a husband and a family... she wants a career as a seamstress. She loves her job and won't give it up, even for her finacee Dante. I really enjoyed this book! I loved that Lucia stood up for what she wanted out of life, though I had to agree with her father on one of her choices. Most of the characters were really brought to life - Lucia's family, in particular, I thought, and her friend/boss Delmarr. I really enjoyed the interaction between them all. This is the first book I've read by Trigiani, but I definitely want to read more.
