As skillfully as Ms. Trigiani makes us laugh, she makes us cry. Everything that really matters is here: humor, romance, wisdom, and drama. High in the Alps, spring was in full bloom, and so was Etta, who was expecting her first. I was so close to the folks back home that when I got married, it seemed natural to try to develop the same ties here that I had there. I miss my parents, but this is a real adventure for me, so I try to focus on that.
And I have my grandfather here, which is a big plus. AT: So you plan to live here forever? EMG: laughs For the foreseeable forever. I want to finish my degree, and I should be able to do that in the next year or so. AT: What are your dreams for your child? She could drive me crazy, but at the same time I knew it was coming from a good place. My father and I have always had an easy relationship. I always wanted to have a family while I was still young. Will you teach him English? EMG: Definitely.
Stefano speaks English very well, and we speak it at home. Stefano and I plan to travel a lot with the baby. EMG: Right here. Stefano and I go to Santa Margherita whenever we get a chance. We love Lake Como. When we go there I always think of Big Cherry Lake back home. Dad used to take us canoeing up there.
The people are so warm and welcoming.
AT: I hear the population growth is flat. EMG: Most families have one. The ones I know, anyhow. AT: Do you know how many children you want? EMG: Two or three. AT: Have the first one and then get back to me on that! AT: Do you have a preference for a girl or a boy? AT: Do you have any names picked out? AT: Of course not! AT: Really? My grandmother chose it for my mother as a sort of talisman, to protect her. That always appealed to me.
AT: You really are a traditionalist. I feel very blessed that I come from a long line of strong women. It seems we survived despite a lot of obstacles. And it also seems that we each made our choices and have lived by them. My mother—and from what I hear, my grandmother, too—never second-guessed herself. AT: I have one piece of advice for you. EMG: Sure. Discover the Must-Read Books of Read An Excerpt. Oct 30, ISBN Add to Cart. Also available from:. Oct 31, ISBN Available from:. Audiobook Download. Paperback —. Also in Big Stone Gap.
