Spanning the course of three wars and almost a century, An Italian Wife: A Novel by Ann Hood, best-selling author of The Obituary Writer and The Knitting Circle, is a multi-generational saga chronicling the story of the Rimaldi family, from the first generation who immigrated to the United States from Italy on the cusp of the twentieth century to their great grandchildren. This is the American experience writ small, explored through the lens of one immigrant family. Beautifully written and deeply emotional, it will thrill fans and critics alike.
