Lucia Sartori is the only daughter in an Italian family living in New York City during the postwar boom of the 1950s. When her ambitions turn to fashion design, her life becomes both glamorous and complicated. Mira Sorvino escorts the listener through Lucia's exciting and tumultuous career with insightful precision, carefully representing Italian dialects, phrases, and emotion. When Lucia finds herself in the midst of a scandal, Sorvino provides the bravado and pacing to keep the story on track, carefully providing equal commitment to all the characters. Although differentiation between male and female characters could have been more prominent, Sorvino's performance as Lucia is excellent. B.J.P.
