Adriana Trigiani's two remarkable grandmothers Lucia and Viola lived through the 20th century from beginning to end as working women who juggled careers and motherhood. From the factory line to the family table the two of them - the very definition of modern women - cut a path for their granddaughter by demonstrating courage and skill in their fearless approach to life love and overcoming obstacles. Trigiani visits the past to seek answers to the essential questions that define the challenges women face today: how we hold on to the values that make life rich and beautiful how we can take risks and reap the rewards how to stand resilient in the face of tragedy. 'Be bold; 'be direct'; 'be different'!
