Teresa Capasso cannot believe that today the last of her three daughters is getting married. As the wedding preparations and rituals move forward, Teresa has reason to suspect that her youngest daughter's husband is physically abusing her. For the sake of another daughter's wedding, she is forced to temper her concern. It is harder than she imagines. Teresa thinks how different her own wedding day had been, a seeming lifetime ago in the small mountain village of Torrecuso, Italy. Like Wine chronicles not only what is special and unique about Italian culture on both sides of the Atlantic, it is about a young woman who took control of her destiny. Teresa's story takes us through 30 years of challenging, humorous and touching experiences of her international marriage, which comes to a modern day climax on the day of her daughter's wedding.

Like Wine was wonderful--a great read that holds the interest page after page. You affirmed my Italian heritage -- your story came alive and echoed tales I grew up with from my own and my husband's family. Thanks so much for sharing the story of a couple's love and the love and pride of your ancestry.
Like Wine 12 Dec 2007 by Elizabeth Dikovics This book was great! I flew through it. I really connected with the characters. I loved the juxtaposition of the courtship/wedding of Theresa reflected in the wedding day of her daughter. The tour through the Amalfi coast was great I felt like I was right there. Definitely a good read!
From: Ann Klein This is a heartwarming and compassionate story. As I read it, I felt like I was an eyewitness to the entire saga of how these two people met and how their feelings emerged. Going back and forth in time made it even more appealing. This is a definite must-read for anyone who has ever loved. I absolutely recommend it.
A must read for anyone who has ever loved. I completely identified with Teresa's character. I sympathized with her, laughed and cried with her. As she took me through her past, from Maplewood, New Jersey in the 50's to Naples, Italy, the Amalfi Coast, Pompeii, and then Rome, I felt like I was right there with her. The contrast of her wedding to that of her daughters was remarkable! Highly recommended.
