Bridge of Sighs and Dreams was published five years ago this week. My goal was to entertain and inform. Sales, interviews, newspaper and magazine articles, and lovely reviews have exceeded any expectations I might have had. An unforeseen benefit has been reconnecting with wonderful old friends and establishing so many amazing new friendships with readers and authors around the world. I am genuinely grateful to every reader, reviewer, and interviewer. La vita e` veramente bella.
While growing up, I always hated listening to jokes about the Italians going into World War 2 with their hands raised. This was not at all the case, and I wanted to point out the bravery of the Italian population during this horrific time. Although Bridge of Sighs and Dreams is fiction, It is based on real events. I felt compelled to write a war novel in which the women don’t play the role of wallpaper or objects of amusement to soldiers and politicians. The women in Bridge of Sighs and Dreams take center stage in a behind-the-lines battle between good and evil.
