"For this moving, intergenerational tale, Santopolo skillfully weaves two love stories in which passionate and idealistic young couples contend with class differences, tension between their personal desires and familial obligations, and the ongoing ramifications of decisions made by earlier generations….The story toes the line between romance and women’s fiction, with equal focus on romantic and familial love. Santopolo’s flawed yet endearing characters are sure to tug at readers’ heartstrings." - Publisher's Weekly
