    One thought on “The Black Madonna”

    1. This is a very sweet story an a very easy read. The characters are all very real. There is no big drama in the story, it is about daily life of families worrying about each other especially motehrs and their children. I enjoyed reading this story.

    2. I enjoyed this book. The transition through time and through different characters kept it flowing. The portrayal of close knit Italian community with the sometimes complicated relationships seemed very real which also made the book enjoyable. I'd recommend it as a fast, sweet read.

    3. 3.5 This is a story of Italian mothers and their fierce devotion to family. I particularily liked the superstitions these women held. I had a few chuckles along the way. 3 women's lives intersect and the black madonna plays a mysterious and powerful role. A delightful read.

    4. This novel about various lives taking place in Little Italy is fairly light-weight. But I really enjoyed it. These seemed to be people that I would know and like had I been present. Really not much else to say. This would probably be a really good book for a long plane ride.

    5. An easy and interesting read. Since I read it over a month ago and have read a couple of books since,I don't exactly recall the entire story. It did keep me interested tho.

    6. I liked this book because it was set in Italy. I thought it would be interesting, turns out it was a little strange for my liking.

    7. A unread for Italian Americans. Not so much for Italian Americans immigrants who cannot appreciate an American's view of the hard life in post-war Italy.

    8. This book is so cute, sad, funnyif you are Italian or have been with Italians, you will get such a kick out of it. The book is about three friends growing up and their mothers

    9. Warm and delightful. A very nice debut and a pleasant confort reading.It reminded me Adriana Trigiani's books
