About the Author
Three cultures have shaped me: Italian, French, and American. I moved from one country to another and spent years immersed in their literatures and historical events. Today, English and Italian are the languages I use in my writing. Because of my experiences, a passion for history and travel accompanies all of my work.
Land of New Hope
The story of a young European’s encounter with the reality of America. It is part memoir and part a hymn to freedom. Each chapter addresses some of her experiences with food, language, customs, and with the issues of ethnicity, racial conflict, and American identity. She travels across the states, is a witness to the changes that have taken place in the country from the 1950s to the present, and reflects on how they have affected her life.
