and got involved in their lives. Couldn't we be part of Ave Maria's "golden
years"? What would have happened to Jack Mac, Iva Lou, Fleeta and all the
rest I wonder. When a series of novels is written and brings joy to a reader's literary life it's hard to accept that it's over. .....then again, maybe it's not.
The Italian connection was lovely and interesting.
Thoroughly enjoyed it. The interwoven story of the visit by Elizabeth Taylor to their little mountain town was brilliant.
I am looking forward to seeing the movie that has been made from this trilogy.
Ave Maria is a woman at a crossroads in her life. Her mother has recently died of cancer and Ave Maria is unmarried at 35 years old. The books chronicle her search for love, fulfillment, and reconnecting with her extended family.
I love the way Adriana Trigiani writes. Her characters are so likeable and realistic. Trigiani's books are heavy on the struggles and everyday life of her characters, which from some authors would be boring, but Trigiani's writing keeps it fun. There's a lot of emotion in this series and the series spans about 25 years. I like a series or book that spans a long length of time like that---it answers any questions I have about their futures.
Just One Gripe:
(Thinking hard here). The only thing I can really say is that the first book was a little slower than the rest. That's to be expected with a debut novel, in my opinion.
The Best Thing About This Series:
I love the way Trigiani writes about women and their emotions and relationships. This would be a great series for a women's book club.
