For over a hundred years, the Angelini Shoe Company in Greenwich Village has relied on the leather produced by Vechiarelli & Son in Tuscany. This ancient business partnership provides the twist of fate for Valentine Roncalli to fall in love with Gianluca Vechiarelli, a tanner with a complex past . . . and a secret.

But after the wedding celebrations are over, Valentine wakes up to the hard reality of juggling the demands of a new business and the needs of her new family. Confronted with painful choices, Valentine remembers the wise words that inspired her in the early days of her beloved Angelini Shoe Company: "A person who can build a pair of shoes can do just about anything." Now, the proud, passionate Valentine is going to fight for everything she wants and savor all she deserves--the bitter and the sweet of life itself.

Romantic and poignant, told with humor and warmth, and bursting with a cast of endearing characters, The Supreme Macaroni Company is an unforgettable narrative about family, work, romance, and the unexpected turns of life and fate.

My first Trigiani book was The Shoemakers Wife and it has been the best by far. This one was entertaining enough for listening too while commuting (very good reader). Didn't realize until I started to review that this is the third in a series of Valentine books-perhaps I'll go back and read/listen to the first two.

I did not enjoy this book as much as the other Valentine books. Valentine is just very self absorbed and the story line does not flow for me. Some of her references to Italian Americans have started to become trite and unrealistic.
Cassandra Campbell does an excellent job reading this book and despite her talents I just wanted the story to end! I was surprised at the ending but I think that was just to leave space for her to write the next book. I am sure we haven't heard the last from Valentine!

I love the books about Valentine Roncalli! Adriana Trigiani writes with beautiful realism about life and family.
