Gayle – I am so enjoying the book that I have nearly finished it – on chapter 16 now! I is addictive and also I wanted to say that the way you describe your grandfather really reminds me of mine! My grandfather also had a hard life growing up in Italy and he never gt the chance to go to school much as he had to work. All my mum’s side of the family were farming families who lived and worked on the land so I feel I have so much in common with your story. 🙂
