Recently Read: Lucia, Lucia

Ever wanted to imagine yourself as a beautiful New York City "shop girl" in the 1940's? A glamorous young Italian woman with gentlemen tripping over themselves to take you on a date? I can't say I ever have, but this book made it sound like fun.

My friend, Wendy, sent Lucia, Lucia to me and I read it in two days over Christmas break. This novel was pure escapism at it's best. I was thoroughly carried away in the story. It was sweet and light but not simple or predictable. I recommend it for an enjoyable mental vacation.
