What readers say about the book🧐

This book is written with sincerity and a very fascinating reflection and history that most don’t experience. As these were the good old days, there were so many lifestyles kept behind closed doors, and so many family secrets! I feel this is a very interesting and enlightening read to see how some Italian families may have lived, back in the good ole days.
