Synopsis: from back cover: La Familia was the philosophy of Cesare and Maria Dellesanto encouraged in their 6 children, to stick together in good times and bad, and this is the story of how their lives intertwined. It is told through the eyes of 4 women in the family. Maria; who is pushed into marriage at 17 to a handsome Italian immigrant she hardly knows but whom she slowly comes to love. Rose; the widowed oldest daughter, caregiver of her elderly parents, who is tempted to love again when an old friend, a dashing ex-Italian teacher, offers her The Fountain of Youth. Gina; Rose's 20-year-old daughter, who comes home on summer vacation from college with purple hair, a ring in her nose, and a tattoo on her shoulder, and has to make a fateful decision when her guitar-playing boyfriend makes her pregnant. Gianna; the one who seemingly has everything but who loses her religious faith and almost her husband when tragedy enters her life, until something strange happens to her at The Jesus Tree in Wooster Square. This book is also a slice of Americana as we experience the sacrifices, life changes, and tragedy of World War II, the excitement of the 1st television set, the heartbreak of losing a beloved home to urban renewal. It is truly "A Time For All Things."
