In the Garden of Papa Santuzzu

by Tony Ardizzone

In the Garden of Papa Santuzzu is a magical, warm, and wise novel about a close-knit family’s immigration from Sicily to America in the early 1900s. The Santuzzus are poor Sicilian farm laborers who endure back-breaking work in the fields of a tyrannical landlord. Wanting more for their children and grandchildren than a lifetime of servitude, Papa Santuzzu and his wife Adriana push their seven sons and daughters, one by one, to immigrate to La Merica, a land of promise and opportunity.
