The Dreams of Singers and Sluggers

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic sequel!Reviewed in the United States on December 12, 2021

This is the sequel to the award winning book called The Heart of Bakers and Artists, previously named Daily Bread. I highly recommend both!
I loved this book as it jumped right back into the Lower East Side in New York in 1911 with the Italian Immigrant family that I fell in love with in the first book. The way Antoinette writes makes it feel as if you are there: seeing the sights, hearing the sounds, smelling all of the smells. A good book is an empathy machine and this book allowed me to be part of a period in time that is impossible to physically travel to.
So what does a loaf of bread, buttons, a baseball, “America, The Beautiful” sheet music and strawberries have to do with this story? You’ll have to read it to find out.
