For Fans Of
Thirty-something sisters, Ellen and Margo Savino, discover there’s more to Italy than the typical tourist destinations when they check out their family roots in the foothills of the Italian Alps, much to the dismay of their sassy grandmother Clarita. Nonnie Clarita, who now lives in St. Louis, was only eighteen when she left her widowed mother in Pont Canavese and immigrated to America after the Second World War. Why she has no regrets about leaving or never returning is a mystery Ellen and Margo are determined to resolve, with or without the obstinate Clarita’s cooperation. Could it be the horrific murder of the father Clarita adored? Or the questionable suicide of Clarita’s young friend and later the drowning of the boy’s grieving father? Or, her ill-fated teenage romance with a persistent Resistance fighter that triggered this series of tragic events?
Fans of Italian-America sagas should enjoy Regrets To Die For, as contemporary as it is historical, and featuring several characters from Loretta Giacoletto’s saga, Family Deceptions.
