Goals for future projects? People are already asking me if I plan to do a sequel. What inspired you to want to become a writer?
I have always been a voracious reader, so that has to be the number one inspiration. One GI received a package of cookies from his family and told the Petrarcas he wanted to share them because it made him "feel like I'm with my own family. But in , a few months after they had arrived, the soldiers from Philadelphia were ordered to move out. They stood in line to kiss Antonaccio's baby sister, Giovanna, and marched away.
At the time, the Petrarcas did not realize they would be heading to the United States. Antonia Lucia Petrarca and her father arrived first, in She was 17 and began working in a jewelry factory. Her father grew mushrooms on a farm. The decades passed, and she was unable to find the soldiers - even with help from Thomas, 50, who served in the military and tried to learn the name of the unit that was posted at Fornelli, 75 miles northeast of Naples.
Antonaccio, a Veterans Affairs health systems specialist who lives in Tucson, Ariz. Antonia Lucia Antonaccio has returned to the village of her birth about six times, and always remembers the "kind and gentle" GIs. I have good memories and just overlook the bad ones. Get the news you need to start your day. Skip to content.
Italian woman searches for Philly GIs who liberated her village. Stark contrast. Others shared chocolate and marmalade. 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.
Definitely a must read. The book is small snapshots of Lucia's life before, during and after the war. Lucia speaks with the innocent of a child.
Sorry we still under construction...
We see her joys and sorrows. We see her grow and change with each turn of the page. A wonderful book full of charming believable characters.
