love takes you home

Ever picked up a book that felt like an immediate best friend? Intrepid Express reader Kerynne Sbrocchi recommends a book that struck a chord with her own life journey…

“For those travellers, who like myself, travelled to Italy to research their ethnic heritage, I recommend Love Takes You Home, by Julie Capaldo. A truly heart-warming novel.

The ingredients of Grace Sabato’s life are an extraordinary mixture of love, magic, music and myth… and food, always food. Her childhood senses are infused with the pungent odors of garlic, espresso and baccala. A grandmother’s bizarre rituals of blood and tears, reminiscences of a distant land where she has never lived and the resonant melodies of a language she cannot speak. Packing a suitcase that once carried the hopes of another far from home, she sets out on a pilgrimage of the heart.”
