Editorial Reviews

Review

"After reading Cynthia Sally Haggard's "Thwarted Queen" Saga, I was looking forward to her newest release, "Farewell My Life." I was not disappointed. She has a special talent of transporting her readers back in time, feel as though they are part of the story, and living in that moment in history. Farewell My Life" gets a very well deserved five plus stars from me. I highly recommend it and plan on reading it again in the near future. It is definitely a keeper." Amy, Locks Hooks & Books
 
"A unique, deftly scripted, and extraordinary novel by an author with a distinctive narrative storytelling style that will hold the readers dedicated attention from beginning to end, "Farewell My Life: Buona Notte Vita Mia" is an impressive and unreservedly recommended addition to both community and academic library Contemporary Literary Fiction collections. One of those rare novels that will linger in the mind and memory long after the book itself has been finished."--Mid-West Book Review


"The author knows her characters very, very well; this shows in the consistent and very individual way they act. This is not a plot-driven story; it's character-driven. In this book, the characters are the jam which holds everything together. The best example of this is Grace, the talented violinist, who, simply, jumps off the page. I loved her."--Wishing Shelf

"This is not your typical mystery; it's for fans of thrilling action and historically­-inspired events...Contra to the status quo of the genre, the men are the romantics - though in a deranged manner - and the women showcased are the core strength of the novel."--BookLife Prize.

"The author...adeptly summons the era in all its manners and details with her descriptive prose...Her omniscient, third-person narrator effectively flits through the heads of various characters, offering momentary glimpses of their inner lives."--Kirkus Reviews

"I loved the elaborate descriptions of all the places in this book. This is the kind of book that shows instead of just telling. The characters are very well-developed and interesting to read about. Angelina is a fascinating character, as is Grace. Along the duration of the book, Grace learns a lot about herself. I was amazed by her quiet yet vibrant personality, and her brilliant talent."--Pavani Mathur (The Voracious Bibliophile)

From the Author

Although this is a dark novel set in a dark time, I hope you will enjoy meeting my family of strong women; witty Violet, confrontational Angelina, majestic Aunt Paulina and our talented violinist Grace, who has her head in the clouds. 
Much of this novel concerns family dynamics and Grace's coming-of-age amidst a trio of rather calculating men, but one fact that might surprise you is that it contains the story of the Oster Conspiracy, one of about 20 attempts to assassinate Hitler between 1934 and 1944. This one (in 1938), came the closest to succeeding and would have done so had it not been for the efforts of English Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain to appease Hitler in his quest to avoid another world war.
Many people ask me what the message of this novel is, and if I had one thing to pick I would say it is about the fragility of life. Those of us who have enough money to enjoy our lives feel secure in the notion that everything will continue forever. But that is not true. Things can unwind much more rapidly than we like to admit.
Lastly, I have done my very best to make this an entertaining read. Apart from a cast of quirky characters that my women have to deal with, the novel takes you to a violin lesson, to a ball and to a nightclub in 1920s Berlin. I hope you enjoy reading this tale as much as I have enjoyed telling it.
