Learning to Be a Widow: Stories of Love, Loss, and Lessons Learned Along the Way
Gwen Romagnoli has written numerous personal essays as well as travel and food articles for the Boston Globe, the Los Angeles Times,and the American Express Magazine. She lived for many years in Italy, but met her Roman husband, Franco, in the U.S. Together they wrote the book, Italy, the Romagnoli Way: A Culinary Journey, about lesser-known places in Italy. Their late-in-life marriage was sadly cut short by Franco’s death. This book is dedicated to his memory.
"Gwen Romagnoli has written these essays in simple, limpid prose, a style casual and friendly,with a feeling that comes straight from the heart. These brief essays offer rare comfort. Gwen Romagnoli’s Learning to be a Widow is about the little things—everyday objects and events— that connected her deeply to her husband, and how she lives now with these memories. By speaking so directly about her own experience, she gives solace to others who are making their own hard journey." —Eugene Mirabelli, author of Renato, the Painter
