Brava, Valentine! And Happy Cupid's Day to you, novelist Adriana Trigiani!

Bestselling author Adriana Trigiani writes with compassion, insight and humor about the complicated lives of today’s women, and this magic touch has earned her millions of fans and enthusiastic critical acclaim. And she does it once again in Brava, Valentine, the standout sequel to her instant New York Times bestseller Very Valentine (just out in paperback). This transporting yet realistic tale, the second installment in a trilogy starring the charismatic Valentine Roncalli and a multigenerational cast of supporting characters, finds Trigiani crafting another emotionally stirring and frequently hilarious take on career, family, friendship and love as well as the delicate dance between respecting tradition and moving forward.

An award-winning playwright, television writer and documentary filmmaker, Trigiani is the author of the bestselling Big Stone Gap series and the New York Times bestselling novels Lucia, Lucia, The Queen of the Big Time, Rococo, and, most recently, Very Valentine, she has been published in 33 countries around the world. Trigiani has written the screenplay for the film version of Big Stone Gap, which she will also direct, and Viola in Reel Life, the first title in her young adult series, debuted in September. She lives in New York City with her husband and daughter.
