Her Nonny cries every time her father's name is mentioned. And the two sides of her family aren't speaking to each other!

But most of all, it's a story about families--about the things that tear them apart and bring them together. And Holm tells it with all the richness and the layers, the love and the laughter of a Sunday dinner at Nonny's. So pull up a chair and enjoy the feast! Buon appetito!
