Who's Publishing What: The Good Left Undone

The prolific Adriana Trigiani has published her first children’s book, The House of Love (Viking Books for Young Readers), and her newest novel, The Good Left Undone (Dutton), will release on April 26. Readers can pre-order signed copies from their local Indie booksellers.

“Adriana Trigiani has written the triumph of her career in this historical epic,” says novelist Lisa Scottoline. “This novel is the dramatic, emotional and profound saga of three generations of women in the Cabrelli family of gemcutters — Domenica, Matelda and Anina — and each character is more brilliant than the last. This novel shines like a flawless diamond, with a multifaceted narrative that shifts seamlessly between Viareggio, Marseilles and Scotland, bringing to light a sweep of history that I never knew existed. Most of all, at its core is the generous, beating heart of family — and a love story that will seep into your soul. I have always loved Adriana Trigiani’s books, but The Good Left Undone is a crown jewel of historical fiction.”

Adriana, who returns to the 2022 Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop as a keynoter, is the New York Times bestselling author of 20 books of fiction and nonfiction, including The Shoemaker’s Wife. Her books have been published in 38 languages around the world. She is an award-winning playwright, television writer/producer and filmmaker. Among her screen credits, Trigiani wrote and directed the major motion picture adaptation of her debut novel, Big Stone Gap. Adriana grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, where she co-founded the Origin Project. Trigiani is proud to serve on the New York State Council on the Arts. She lives in New York City with her family.
