Publisher's Summary

The Generosity of Strangers: When War Came to Fornelli is written in first person, free verse, and consists of a series of vignettes chronicling the real life experiences of a young girl and her family in war-torn Italy in the 1940s. The story is set in the town of Fornelli - a tiny hilltop community in Italy's mountainous heart.

For Lucia and her family, life in Fornelli is anything but boring. Life is difficult, yet tranquil. But soon the war comes, and life in Fornelli is tranquil no more.

The Generosity of Strangers: When War Came to Fornelli is a true accounting from the eyes of Lucia, about faith, hope, and courage in the midst of war and its aftermath. It poetically conveys how even in desperate times people can open their hearts and rise above adversity.

    "Wonderful story; wonderfully narrated!"
    Any additional comments?

    As the author of this book, I would really like to thank Allie Costa, the book's narrator, for sincerely embracing the main character--"putting on her shoes" even for a short duration--and bringing this story to life. I could not have asked for a better narration. Allie has a gift, and I'm thankful and honored that she shared it! Also, many thanks to Barry "Faz' Fasman, for, without his studio engineering wizardry, we would not have this audiobook to share.
