Summary
In turn-of-the-century Italy, fourteen-year-old Josephine, sheltered and naèive, is forced into an arranged marriage to a man she doesn't know or love who is about to depart for America, where she later joins him. Bound by tradition, Josephine gives birth to seven children. The last, Valentina, is conceived in passion, born in secret, and given up for adoption. Josephine spends the rest of her life searching for her lost child, keeping her secret even as her other children go off to war, get married, and make their own mistakes
Summary
An Italian immigrant watches her six children grow up while she searches for her seventh, the product of a love affair who was given up for adoption
