Editorial Reviews


"With a sprawling stirring narrative and almost lyrical prose, not to mention a plot twist that I most definitely did not see coming, Forty Years In A Day is one of those books that grabs your attention from the very beginning and takes you on a beautiful voyage of discovery. This novel is simply unputdownable. It is enthralling, beguiling and utterly engrossing. When Historical Fiction is written in such a way, then there is no such thing as too much."  -The Coffee Pot Book Club 2020 Five Star Award

"Told by two with the eye and instinct of keen storytellers who know exactly when to divulge, when to pause and hold onto secrets and twists. Readers will be exhausted and inspired from the journey, and wouldn't have it any other way!"  -The Review

"The narrative, setting of the scenes, the tone, characters, dialogue, were all wonderful. All of these drew me into the story from the first page to the last. I was apart of the story!"  -Impressions in Ink Reviews

"A moving family saga with an incredible and entirely unexpected twist, Forty Years in a Day is a pleasantly emotional story. The plot is one of those most creative I've ever encountered, debut or otherwise."  -Flashlight Commentary Reviews

"With a surprise twist added to the mix, Forty Years in a Day is an unforgettable book and a testimony to the perseverance of the human spirit." -The True Book Addict Reviews

"The writing is so good, the characters jump off the page and feel so real. This is a wonderful, yet intensely emotional story." -Must Read Faster Reviews

"I loved the way the authors were able to create such a vivid recount of those times and create a story which is so multi-dimensional with many characters and views." -A Life Through Books Reviews

"Wow, these authors really did an amazing job of bringing the 1900's to life through one family and several generations." -My Reading Addiction Reviews

"I loved the story. I loved the tone and the way it sounded just like someone telling their family story to their children." -A Book Geek Reviews

"Forty Years In A Day so brilliantly illuminates the hardships and tribulations of a family coming to America in the 1900's." -Laura Terry, author of Intertwined

"The stunning array of characters that parade through the twists and turns of several generations is amazing." -Patrick O'Sheen, author of Dreamer

From the Author

Forty Years In A Day begins in 1900 and follows the incredible journey of a young mother and her four children as they escape from Italy into the streets of Hell's Kitchen, New York. That woman was my grandmother. The story ends with a woman who knows the father of her children is living a double life with another, but she loves him so much that she overlooks the arrangement rather than forfeit the man. Those were my parents. In between are the stories that I had heard from family members who had lived through an era that we can only read about, intertwined with a twist of fiction and sensationalism. 

Forty Years In A Day epitomizes the immigration experience and coming to America in the early 1900s. It reignites curiosity and admiration for what our ancestors had endured and accomplished to make our lives better.

Enjoy the journey,
Mona --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
