“Required reading for all those whose work is with poor people.” —Library Journal

“One of those rare works that deserves a place alongside Oscar Lewis’s Children of Sanchez and James Agee’s Let Us Now Praise Famous Men.” — San Francisco Chronicle

“Read these portraits . . . Ann Cornelisen knows these women so well, and her regard for them is so loving, complicated, and despairing that her book is worth a shelf of dissertations on Italian village life.” — New York Times Book Review
