This a good read if you would like to learn about the time of your sicilian ancestors or just like historical fiction/non-fiction.Mostly 1848 -1900.The fight for liberation and unity.I knew the lives of my ancestors were difficult but that is stating it mildly.
The day to day sicilian life was barely an existence. They didn't emmigrate to America and elsewhere for a better life they escaped Sicily to survive.
Even after fighting for their beliefs,Sicilians were treated horribly by the government of Italy.
The latter half of this book was a very good read to connect with the ancestor experience and the exodus out of Sicily;their thoughts and emotions.
The author writes a very good story, the editing was disruptive to the story in a few spots.But it was an enlightening read.
