Sabina Giovanotti, waitress by day and aunt extraordinaire by night, is forty, single, and still living above her family's folksy cafe in Chicago's Little Italy. Sanwiched between fours sisters, all married with children, and her mother and aunt, both cooks at the cafe, Sabina is trying to come to terms with the fact that her life didn't turn out as planned.
"Tuck in your napkin and enjoy! Between Courses is a story that opens its door and welcomes you into a family with whom you feel completley at home. Eccentric characters with loving hearts, doing their best and often failing as we all do; and a love story that is not at all typical, which makes it all the more believable. I found I was rationing the pages towards the end - I didn't want to have to put it down and walk out the door forever. Much more depth than 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding' and every bit as deserving of praise." --Madge Wells
"I really loved this book! I had two small children at the time of reading it. I never missed a nap when they napped. Well, not when I reading this book! I would forgo my nap just to keep reading! Sabina is amazing, and the story makes your heart skip a beat. I never saw the t c wist coming, and when it did, I cried! Karla Clark makes all the characters real and have so much meaning. You care for all of them! I think the book could hold it's own as a television show instead of a movie because you would want to keep going on and on and on ... Of course, all the recipes are just another added bonus! How unique!"--Erin Drinkwine
