All About “Children of Liberty”

January 20, 2012

Hi everyone: You may have seen this somewhere already, but here’s the official announcement: my new book is called Children of Liberty, and here’s the description (from Amazon):

At the turn of the century and the dawning of the modern world, Gina from Belpasso comes to Boston’s Freedom Docks to find a new and better life, and meets Harry Barrington,  who is searching for his. The fates of the Barringtons and Attavianos become entwined, on a collision course between the old and new,  between what is expected and what is desired, what is chosen and what is bestowed,  what is given and what is taken away. As America races headlong into the future, much will be lost and much will be gained for Gina and Harry, whose ill-fated love story will break your heart. 

I hope you all will enjoy it as much as I have loved writing it.
