In this "moving story of how sacrifices accumulate in the wake of passions left unfulfilled" (Publishers Weekly)-perfect for fans of Fredrik Backman and Lisa Genova-a poet must decide if he should put his family's or his own needs first when he returns to Italy help run the family business he left behind years ago. As the heir to a proud Northern Italian ice-cream dynasty, Giovanni Talamini's family is none too happy when he decides to break with tradition and travel the world as a poet. So when Giovanni receives an unexpected call from his brother, he is faced with a difficult decision: return home to serve in his family's interests or continue on his own path in life once and for all? In a heartwarming tale that weaves history with lore and poetry with delicious recipes, The Ice-Cream Makers paints a century-long, multigenerational portrait of a family wrestling with their identity and how to ensure their legacy. This is a "delightful read; smooth as ice cream on a hot summer day" (Kirkus Reviews).
