Overview

Peter Pezzelli's remarkable debut, Home to Italy, won the hearts of readers and critics alike.  Now, with Every Sunday, Pezzelli has created another unforgettable tale about life, love, family and friendship.

In Providence, Rhode Island, everybody knows Nick Catini. Street smart, with a quick wit and a larger-than-life personality, Nick is the go-to guy, the owner of Catini's Hardware who's there to score friends tickets to the big game or fix his daughters' problems. Every Sunday, Nick presides over the family dinner, dishing out sauce and advice with equal abandon. It is a time for family, for grandchildren, for men watching football in the living room while the women gossip and plan in the kitchen. It is a time to remember what matters most in life. Sunday is the best day of the week, and nobody can imagine it without Nick.

But when Nick is suddenly gone, that is exactly what they have to do—go on without him. For his girls—Maria, Nina, and Gina—it means learning to stand on their own feet while arguing about whether or not their mother, Teresa, can date again. For Teresa, it means trying somehow to keep her family together, even as she wonders what it would be like to find love again. And for her carefree son, Johnny, it means making good on his father's last request, a secret with the power to heal Johnny's guarded heart, if it doesn't destroy his family in the process.

Now, as the first leaves of fall stick to the wet streets of New England, as the winter snow melts into the pastel hues of spring, and everything seems new and different, the Catinis will be tested and changed as never before. For what seems like an insurmountable loss just may be the beginning of the best part of their lives. . .

At once both funny and heartwarming, with one of the most unique, unforgettable narrators to come along in years, Every Sunday is a warm, winning novel rich in hope, wisdom and the surprising strength of second chances.

This was an awful book. What atrociuous writing. It seemed to be written by a child, not an adult. The writing style was so adolescent and passive. I was not impressed. It was predictable and I didn't even finish it. I wouldn't waste your time.

I was so disappointed in this second book by Peter Pezzelli. I really loved his first book and had looked forward to the arrival of EVERY SUNDAY. I thought his writing was fine, the content was just boring.

Don't listen to the bad reviews. This is a sweet story to read when you want to relax. Have a glass of wine while reading. It isn't great literature but still charming. Enjoy

I have read Peter Pezzelli's first 4 books and ready now to start his last book Italian Lesson's. I have loved each and every book. They are all just wonderful. Fell in love with all his characters. Peter has a wonderful way with his writing and makes the characters in his story's come alive. When I finish his last book I will be waiting to buy his next book for sure.

I enjoyed this book because it reminded me of simpler times, growing up surrounded by family...whether you wanted to be or not! The narrator is humorous, and all the characters are down to earth and unpretentious as is the writing style of the author. I thought it was delightful and plan to give a few as gifts!
