The love story of Tembi and Saro is one of passion, commitment, and everlasting love. Not since Paul Kalanithi’s “When Breath Becomes Air” have I been so moved by a book.. Tembi Locke conveys passion and sincerity which is deeply felt on each and every page. It is articulate, vulnerable and full of symbolism. I could not put this book down and highly recommend it.

I loved this book. I dream of going to Sicily to see where my family was from. The language, the food, the relationships, the connection - it was all so special. Thanks for sharing your story with us.

“That morning I wanted nothing more than to know that it was possible for me to feel alive, fully alive again. The half living of life after loss was shifting. I wanted to be reminded of the bounty of life...” Oh this precious little book touched my heart. I was tearing up at the prologue. Through Tembi’s words you can feel the love she has for her family. I know first hand the challenges of learning to navigate the world again as a mom and widow so this book really hit home for me. I laughed. I cried. I felt like I had traveled to Italy and ate all this delicious food. It was the beautiful blending of two cultures through love and loss. I highly recommend this unforgettable memoir.
