Giveaway! The Shoemaker's Wife

Today marks the release of the paperback version of one of my this year's favorites, The Shoemaker's Wife!


This is one not to miss, folks and will, in my opinion, be read for a long time :) This was my first Adriana Trigiani, but it will definitely not be my last.
I reviewed it for TLC Book Tours in April here, but today I'm excited to offer a giveaway from the publisher to one of my readers! Yay!

Simply leave a comment indicating that you are interested in reading this fabulous story, leave your email, blog address (if you have one), and if you're a longtime reader of Trigiani, tell me which one of her books I should read next! 

I'll close the giveaway one week from today, August 28, 2012 and announce the winner in Wednesday's post :)  The book will be shipped directly from the publisher.

A very special thanks to Harper-Collins for sponsoring this giveaway!

  4. I ran out of time on my first check out of this novel from the library that I wasn't able to get very far into it. I've also heard great things about it so far. I'm still waiting to get it back again so I can keep reading.

    1. You definitely need to read Trigiani, Pam...The Shoemaker's Wife is the only one I've read so far but I can't wait to get my hands on the others :)

  9. I read her book about advice from her grandmothers and loved it. Now I am craving more. I love the Italian language, food and music and family inspired books like this one.

    1. I can't wait to read the book you're talking about, Carol. The Shoemaker's Wife is the only Trigiani I've read but family is the heaviest theme throughout the book...and I just love that! :)

  10. I've listened to two other Adriana Trigiani's books (Cassandra Campbell narrating the Brava, Valentine series) and love her work. I'm thinking about getting this one in audio also; Trigiani's words just seem to evoke such sheer emotion that I love to hear how the narrator voices the characters!

    1. I'm always a little nervous about narrators, Natalie...especially new ones (new for me anyway). I listened to a couple of Kathy Reichs books and then the narrator changed. It really throws me for a loop for some reason :/
