All This Talk of Love by Christopher Castellini

I received this as an advance copy from This is a continuation of the story Castellini told in “A Kiss From Maddalena”.  I think you could read this book without having read the prior one; however you will appreciate this book more if you have read it.

Fifty years ago, Antonio went to Italy to find a wife and brought Maddalena back with him.  They have never been back to their small town of St. Ceclia and now their daughter is planning a trip for the whole family to visit the homeland. However; Maddalena refuses to go.

Beneath the surface this is a beautiful book about family loyalty, what we ‘owe’ each other and what we do FOR each other.  Charming, tender story. 

4 stars (some sex and language)
