Adriana Trigiani draws from personal history in this endearing memoir, which describes her life with her two beloved grandmothers, Spada Bonicelli (Lucy) and Yolanda Perin Trigiani (Viola), and recounts what made them such remarkable twentieth-century women. Trigiani has a straightforward storytelling style that befits the two women as she tells how they managed motherhood and careers and kept tidy homes, always placing family first. Anecdotes reveal how her grandmothers taught Trigiani invaluable life lessons demonstrating strength in the face of adversity while simultaneously providing comfort to the family. The resiliency, humor, and warmth embodied in these women and passed down over generations allow the listener to understand how their warmth and strong values made Trigiani the writer she is today.
