Carissima × From Rosanna Chiofalo comes a sumptuous new novel that sweeps readers from the Italian American enclave of Astoria New York to the stunning vistas of Rome and introduces two very different women in a story of friendship love and destiny In college Pia Santore had dreamed of going to New York and taking the Big Apple by storm with her younger sister Erica Instead Pia has arrived in Astoria ueens with a prestigious journalism internship at a celebrity magazineand As a fan of Adriana Trigiani’s Valentine series I was very excited to receive a copy of this book and if you are also a fan of Trigiani’s work then I am sure you might find this book endearing to your tastes as well Featuring two Italian women as the main characters Carissima is a story that seeks to explore friendship love and moving on from the mistakes of the past In some ways I will say that the novel succeeded in the fulfillment of it’s premise but in other ways I was disappointed with the enigmatic ways of its’ main characterWhile Francesca Donata and Pia Santore come from different eras and walks of life they are soon bunched together to discover their similarities As an aspiring journalist Pia is on a mission to secure an interview with the Italian screen legend that has appeared with much mystiue in a neighborhood of Astoria The neighbors and the paparazzi are enthralled by her appearance but Pia remains aloof from Francesca with preconceived notions of the legend’s nature which Francesca also contributes to with her controlling nature when it comes to stipulations of the interview and her treatment of other people For a while the story seemed very stilted as the women challenged each other for control of the situation; however once they began to open up to one another they discover that they are alike than they previously had thought The novel blossomed into something that grabbed my interest and as Francesca and Pia discuss and confront their demons of the past in the areas of guilt forgiveness friendship and love At this point I thought I knew where the story was going until the author threw a major wrench into the works towards the endPerhaps if the wrench had been omitted I would have liked the story Or maybe my distaste towards the conclusion could have been resolved if the author had dug deeper into the behavior of Francesca The reader and Pia believe they have figured the woman out only to have her return to her enigmatic ways again The explanation for her behavior was very uick crass and did not fulfill a sense of understanding recognition or pity in me as a reader If the point had always been to reach this climax and uickly resolved conclusion then the author should have done a much better job of peeling back further layers of Francesca’s character to support how she could have acted this way I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review DOC è ´ Rosanna Chiofalo
