Two feuding families, two love stories - and a lot of delicious Italian food.

Pieta Martinelli's sister is getting married. Since she is a bridal designer it falls to her to make the wedding gown. But Pieta is distracted by a series of unanswered questions. Why is her father feuding with another Italian in the neighbourhood? Why is her mother so faded and sad? And could the man she's always held a torch for really be getting married to someone else?

As Pieta stitches and beads her sister's wedding gown, she uncovers the secrets that have made her family what it is and that could stand between her and happiness.

THE ITALIAN WEDDING is a feast of food and love. It's about discovering who your parents really are. And who you really want to be.

Nicky Pellegrino

Nicky Pellegrino's Italian father moved to England after falling in love with and marrying a Liverpool girl. He brought to his new family his passion for food and instilled in them what all Italians know - that you live to eat instead of eating to live. This Italian mantra is the inspiration behind Nicky's delicious novels. When Nicky met and married a New Zealander she moved to Auckland where she writes books and works as a freelance magazine journalist.
