Rosina leaves Italy to build a better life, but reality in America is nothing like the dream.
She is far from the Italian olive groves where she grew up. Here the work is endless, and the winters are cold and desolate. She never expects to find love in such a place.
Then she met him.
Gianni, the shoemaker’s apprentice, is gentle and handsome. He is everything she never knew she needed in her life.
But when she falls ill and is quarantined, their future is at stake. All she can do is cling to the beautiful letters Gianni writes. Each week she tries to survive the long, lonely days until next Sunday for his brief visit.
Will fate bring Rosina and Gianni together once more? Or are they destined to remain star-crossed forever?
