Nick Cristano regularly goes "over the river" to the home of his four Italian-American grandparents in New Jersey every Sunday for dinners that are governed by the three "F's" - family, faith and food. The job he's been waiting for-marketing executive-would take him away from his beloved, but annoying, grandparents. Besides the usual tactics of emotional blackmail, in order to keep him safe at home, these wily elders cook up a matchmaking scheme, Will the prospect of true love keep Nick from moving across the country? Over the River and Through the Woods is a warm-hearted, boisterously funny, and touching story about intergenerational relationships, deep familial love, and the inevitable little heartbreaks that occur as time passes and children grow.
