    It"s been fifty years since Antonio Grasso married Maddalena and brought her to America. That was the last time she saw her family and all that she knew and loved in Santa Cecilia, Italy. Prima, raised on the lore of the Old Country, hatches the idea to take the entire family back to visit. It is an idea that threatens to tear the Grasso family apart, until fate deals them some unwelcome surprises and their trip home becomes a necessity.

    Talk to Books is a new way to explore ideas and discover books. Make a statement or ask a question to browse passages from books using experimental AI.
