Book Description

Set in the 19th century, in picturesque Italy, this comic writing follows the daily life and blunders of one Cardinal Angelo Fratelli. He is devout, young, handsome and experiences many trials partly because of his excitability and because of his snobby Aunt Francine.

Suddenly, Michele, a dear, childhood friend, comes around and doesn’t get the hint he is unavailable. Fratelli must hatch a plan to get her married off so she leaves him alone- also while proving himself to parishioners and various, other clergy.

Lots of laughs and misadventures!!

'The Misadventures of Cardinal Fratelli' by swiftly upcoming author Rachel Gohlman (aka Rae Marie on FB)is a wonderful and powerful and very enticingly humorous introduction to the fictional character of the titular character (who also has an advice column on FB), who is the portrayal in an at once serious, but at the same moment, very funny and very sympathetic view of how a Cardinal lives with his voluntary restrictions and his caring and empathy for people, not to mention how he must always dress properly.

The several stories that fill this novel of course center around Cardinal Fratelli, and also his reacquainting himself with his brother Ernesto who falls in love with Michele, who had thought herself in love with the Cardinal and now finds herself swooning to his brother's more earnest attentions. A crazy manic Catholic version of a Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn movie in many places and ways, but also with the empathy of Cary Grant in 'Penny Serenade.' It is not at all the same really, but these feelings of those stories is reflected nicely here, even better in many ways!

The other complications are all very realistic and it is fun to see how the endearing Cardinal Fratelli is able to cope with and deal with each of them, and sometimes out and out hilarious. If you don't have a fireplace and logs to warm you up on a cold wintery night, reading this book will warm you up nicely, and also relieve the day's tensions in its ongoing chuckalicious mirth and the laughter it will bring you!

More About the Author

I have enjoyed writing all my life usually in the fantasy genre. Creating my own worlds and seeing beyond this world is something I regularly do.

Now I am experimenting with horror and comedy using my Catholic faith as a theme. I also write poetry about a variety of religious, natural and philosophical subjects. Hopefully, I will be publishing a book of my poetry soon which will be peppered with illustrations using my own art.

I am a graduate from Bradley University with a Bachelor's in science. My concentration was Studio Arts.
