Publisher's Summary

As a second-generation Italian American, Margie grew up knowing her Sicilian grandparents and always felt a closeness to the Sicilian cultural traditions which were maintained by her family.

Not until Margie had grandchildren of her own, did she travel to Sicily for the first time. Here, she felt at home. She fell in love with the people and the culture of Sicily and sensed a real emotional connection.

She has returned to Sicily over and again and recounts her experiences in this true story, with passion and love for her ancestors' homeland. You will feel as if you are traveling alongside Margie as she travels to different places in Sicily, explores the village of her grandparents, and connects with new friends whom she believes to be family.

Finished it in one afternoon :)

Great audiobook! I will probably get a hardcover copy too.
The author did a great job at creating a unique travel-guide-memoir that is truly outside the box.
I am a passionate traveler myself and as such I don't really like cookie cutter travel guides.
This book is different. I learned a lot about Italy, especially its cultural differences (between South and North).
As I am writing this review, we still can't travel freely because of the corona virus precautions.
But I am hoping it will end soon as I really feel like exploring Syscily now!
I also really enjoyed the narration of this book. the author's voice was very calming:)
