Dove Review

This is a story about a young man who takes care of the people around him no matter what. Dominic is a charming Italian man who runs a pastry shop that makes the best biscotti around. He is watching out for his two brothers and a lovable elderly couple upstairs. Bella is a sweet Italian woman from the old country who loves Dominic and his brothers as they help her out with her husband. Together they are like a big family.But Bella has a dream of seeing Dominic married to her daughter, Lucia, who is with the Peace Corp.

But when Dominic takes Bella to the doctor he finds out her health is not what she pretends. He knows now what he must do to help her, that is find her daughter and marry her. Along the way he learns about himself, his brothers and life.
