Goodreads: For over a hundred years, the Angelini Shoe Company in Greenwich Village has relied on the leather produced by Vechiarelli & Son in Tuscany. This historic business partnership provides the twist of fate for Valentine Roncalli, the school teacher turned shoemaker, to fall in love with Gianluca Vechiarelli, a tanner with a complex past . . . and a secret.
A piece of surprising news is revealed at The Feast of the Seven Fishes when Valentine and Gianluca join her extended family on a fateful Christmas Eve. Now faced with life altering choices, Valentine remembers the wise words that inspired her in the early days of her beloved Angelini Shoe Company: “A person who can build a pair of shoes can do just about anything.” The proud, passionate Valentine is going to fight for everything she wants and savor all she deserves — the bitter and the sweetness of life itself.
Romantic and poignant, told with humor and warmth, and bursting with a cast of endearing characters, The Supreme Macaroni Company is a sumptuous feast of delights: a portrait of a woman and the man she loves, her passion for craftsmanship, and the sacrifices it takes to build and sustain a family business while keeping love and laughter at the center of everything.
Ope’s Opinion: This is the third and final book in the series about the Roncalli and Angelini family. This book is about Gianluca and Valentines marriage, learning to live with one another, work and family.
With all the details that Adriana Trigiani gave the reader in the first book, I would have thought the wedding in this book would have had more description. The wedding felt rushed to me.
The ending surprised me. I was not expecting where the author went with the story. It made me think – don’t want to say too much – I don’t want to spoil it for anyone.
I have not read The Shoemaker’s Wife yet. I will definitely do read it soon.
