Narrated by Eva Alexander
A beautiful, sweeping epic from the bestselling author of Big Stone Gap and The Supreme Macaroni Company.
Like threads of delicate gold, the lives of two young Italian lovers, Enza Ravanelli, a practical girl born into poverty, and Ciro Amadei, a dreamer raised in a convent orphanage, are woven together in this lush, epic novel set against the landscape of world events in the first half of the twentieth century. Like the times they were born into, Enza and Ciro’s story is filled with surprising twists and turns. Together, they embrace the promise of a new and better life as they attempt to survive by the labour of their own hands.

The Shoemaker’s Wife is utterly splendid.’ KATHRYN STOCKETT, author of The Help
