About the Book

Very Valentine

The Angelini Shoe Company, one of the last family-owned businesses in Greenwich Village, has been making exquisite wedding shoes since 1903 but now teeters on the brink of financial collapse. To save their business from ruin, 33-year-old Valentine Roncalli --- apprentice to and granddaughter of master artisan Teodora Angelini --- must bring the family's old-world craftsmanship into the 21st century. Juggling a budding romance, her duty to her family, and a design challenge presented by a prestigious department store, Valentine returns to Italy with her grandmother, turning her life and the business upside down in ways she never expected.
