Item Description...
"Leave Sicily? Why? Our families...everything we love is here. Please, my husband, don't do this to us." "Th ere's a better life for us in America, Fiessa; you need to trust me.....We're going!" In November 1913 Pietro and his family embarked on a frightening journey with a totally uncertain future. Crocifessa was heartbroken...and terrified. Ethel was thirteen years old in 1896; she had a feisty spirit and didn't want to leave the farm in Manchester, England. "What does America have that we don't have here?" "Opportunity!" her father said. Harry searched his heart...and his Bible for answers. He secretly cried often, and called out, "Why? Why Lord? What has happened to our life? What did we do wrong?" "You're like a gumball machine; a thought comes into your mind, drops down onto your tongue, and comes right out of your mouth." "I can't help it...I'M ITALIAN!"

Publishers Description
Laugh and cry through four generations with the Vitello family. Amidst their struggles, joys and heartaches they discover that an abundant supply of faith, good food and laughter heals everything.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Memory Lane  May 21, 2008
I was brought up in between Parker St. and Bickford St. on Center Street (before the projects)and gone to all the same Schools. My sister Carole was a year behind Fran and my Brother Charles Hewson was a year ahead of her.
I loved the book it was just so nice and easy reading, we couldn't put it down. After I read it my Mom (who is 92) wanted to read it and now my sister Carole is reading it. I bought another one for my brother and sent it to him; he lives in Washington state and I didn't want my copy to get missplaced. ha ha
I wrote a letter to Irne Downey and told her about the book she lived on Park Row, and also Janet Witterkind, she also lived a couple od doors down from us.
All fo our responces are wonderful...every one that has read your book LOVES IT!!!

Grazie Mama!!  Jan 18, 2007
This book touched my heart, it made me laugh and it made me cry. Fran Vitello Murphy brought highlights of my childhood years flooding back to me. I enjoyed every generation as though I were a part of it. I am 3rd generation American, Italian but she fills me with so much pride in my heritage and my family that I was overjoyed with every chapter. I have to say I have never been more proud of my ancestry as I am today. And why shouldn't I be. She's my mother. "Grazie Mama" you've made us all so proud.
Italian Bostonians ... and then some  Jan 7, 2007
What an interesting, humorous look at family life that surges with genuine, salt-of-the-earth warmth and lovingkindness. And what a detailed lens on the City of Boston (1900-1970, primarily the neighborhood of Jamaica Plain) the author focuses the reader on! This book of creative nonfiction is powerful in both its scope and simplicity, recounting the tribulations and humble triumphs of an unassuming, yet dynamic family. Murphy's narrative (her first novel) has all the elements of a generational, James Michener novel; from paternal ancestry in Sicily and maternal ancestry in England, to the old Yankees of Salem--all of whom journeyed to Boston in search of a quality of life they were willing to pray, toil and sweat for, the acquisition (and definition) of devoted spouses and offspring---and ultimately, profoundly, God.
