This is a fast-paced read in a voice that is fresh and powerful. It introduces the Donitella family, ordinary people with extraordinary tales to tell. Spanning four decades the novel opens its mouth-watering tale in the 1950s when the father's ritual story-telling begins to take on the power of prayer. The Donitellas will stay with you and you'll keep thinking of them as one thinks of interesting people one has just met.
