Summary
An irresistable Italian saga, about the eduring love affair between Italy and England, about three very different generations of Italian women, and an old kitchen in Campania which binds them all together. Italy, 1964. Maria Domenica is the eldest daughter of Pepina and Erminio Carrozza, a farming family from the tiny southern village of San Giulio. At sixteen, Maria's life is limited to the confines of her mother's rural kitchen where she bakes bread every morning, the way the Carrozza women always have and the Caffe Angeli, a place of friendship, strong espresso and famous ricotta sfolgliatelle. Her parents have high hopes for their beautiful firstborn, but she has other plans. Maria runs away to Rome but, one year later, she returns to San Giulio in disgrace eight months pregnant with the identity of the father a mystery. Hastily, shamefully, she is married off to a neighbour's son. But she soon escapes again, this time to England, where she searches once more for a new life for herself and her daughter, Chiara. Many years later, it is Chiara, not Maria, who finds herself drawn back to San Giulio to the dusty little piazza, to the enticing aromas of the Caffe Angeli and to her longlost family. But she soon discovers that the simple Italian life she seeks is not as simple as it seems particularly where the past is concerned
