    Lemon BlossomsA book to cherish! Fabulous--so real. Ms Romano does not shy away from life issues from birth to death. I read this first as an ARC, and today bought two more copies for avid reader friends, who will love it like I did. I’ve read Nina Romano’s wonderful short story and poetry collections, (see her author page on amazon!), but this book’s narrative is far above and beyond poetry. Her writing is lyrical and lovely. How she managed to combine a series of set-pieces and make them [...]

    Nina Romano has gifted readers with a lyrically lovely, insightful trip back in time. An exquisitely wrapped present for those who value family, with its virtues and its flaws, and appreciate cultural nuances. A version of time-travel complete with minute details, the inbred idiosyncrasies of an Italian-American upbringing, from the making of horns behind one's back to ward off the evil eye, to the guilt inherent to being raised in the faith: "…I knew I'd have to bear this small torture and of [...]

    Lemon Blossoms continues Nina Romano's Wayfarer Trilogy, which started with The Secret Language of Women. Romano's lush prose and ability to make characters leap from the page will draw you in immediately. You'll be surrounded by the scents, colors and even tastes of Italy as you follow the story of Angelica and Giacomo. Romano delves into the customs and traditions of Italian society and its mores, sprinkled with the food they eat and the herbs they use in cooking, as well as a dose of Italian [...]

    Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! This is the second novel in theWayfarer Trilogy. I did not care for the first novel but this second novel is very well written. The novel is set at the end of the 19th century in Silicy. Angelica and her family live on a large farm at the base of Mt. Etna. Throughout her life, Angelica struggles with her desires to be a nun and her mother's desires for her to marry and have children. Her inner struggles continues until she meets Giacomo, her one true love. Her life [...]

    Lemon Blossoms is written in a scenic, lyrically poetic style with beautiful descriptive passages. The story is recounted in two points of views: Angelica's and her mother, Rosalia's. These are both strong, wonderfully drawn characters. This episodic novel is well-told and would translate beautifully to film! I can see it as a movie!!! I can't wait to read Nina Romano's next book, In America, in this wonderful saga.

    Nina Romano can depict setting with so much color and fragrance and texture that I felt I traveled to Italy. Her plotting is an adventure, the characters so lively and well-drawn that I expect to see them when I actually go to Italy someday. Highly recommended.

    Lemon Blossoms is the second book in Nina Romano's The Wayfarer Trilogy and I actually loved this book more than the first one. In this second installment, we are introduced to the main character, Angelica, who is Italian. We witness her many adventures and unfortunate tragedies through the years. She's a precocious, curious girl who has a penchant for getting into trouble but she's also very strong and stands up for herself and her beliefs. Angelica has the gift of "seeing" and these visions le [...]

    An intriguing, fulfilling book. Watching a young girl develop into a deep, thoughtful young woman - experiencing personal, family and societal tragedies. Alternating from the perspective of the heroine and the viewpoint of her mother, I had a fuller sense of Angelica and why she carried certain ideology into her adulthood. The book was not only a story of a woman longing for love and her place in the circle of childbirth and motherhood, but of the love a mother feels for her child. Wanting to pr [...]

    well done, nicely written story of a woman and her quest. I had not read the first two books in this series, which I think might have helped but at the same time- I ate this one up. Recommend if you enjoy stories about women working through adversity. Thanks to Edelweiss for the ARC.
