Educator, author, playwright, columnist and musician only begin the list of artistic talents of America's Newest Storyteller, David Mercaldo. Following his first novel, FERRY, comes the story of five women who would not let their love and friendship wane in spite of a changing world. SEAMSTRESS captures an era when your baby shoes were bronzed when a dozen people gathered around the dining room table on Sunday for dinner when grandfather and grandmother were called mamma and papa! David Mercaldo has that rare ability to take such ordinary happenings, the everyday events of our lives, and turn them into extraordinary literature. Many people, not only Italian-Americans, will identify easily with the finely drawn characters in SEAMSTRESS. The book is at once poignant and funny while presenting an accurate picture of Italian-American families, particularly of the generations that grew up during the Depression, World War II and the post-war period! Mike Azzara The Staten Island Advance David Mercaldo has a unique way of bringing out human emotions in his readers. The book brought tears to my eyes and joy to my heart!
