About the Book

Soul seeking through memories of an island childhood, the author returns to her ancestral roots in Italy. An Umbrian village wraps its arms around this grieving mother as she rebuilds her soul—an elderly Italian woman takes the author under her watch—her old Italian family farmhouse and farm become the bridge for the author and her ancestral history. The maternal warmth of neighbors and village mirror the familial ties of her past, nurturing soul reparations and internal peace. Olive harvests overlap memories of family gardens and Sunday gatherings. The farm and village unite not only the author, but her children and friends to the beauty of life.


About the Author

The author spends her time between Italy and New York with her husband. Her writing deals primaily with a tragic loss in her life and gradually becomes a memoir. What was lost develops the definition of her current relationships. These then move into the creation of new interactions and thoughts and become an affirmation to a spiritual belief.
