Linda Falcone guides us through the many mysteries of Italian turns of phrases that reveal much about this culture in her two books “Italians Dance” and “If they were Roses.” Her third book is a work of fiction that will ring home to anyone who has ever moved, or dreamed of moving, to another country.
This gift set combines all three books by Linda Falcone
