Editorial Reviews

From the Author

A Girl From the Hill is my first, and hopefully not my last book.  As a matter of fact, the Girl and I just started taking our show on the road!  We did our first book reading and signing at the Davisville Library in North Kingstown, Rhode Island and it was fabulous!  We read, we talked and we laughed a lot.  This book depicts many aspects of my mother's life growing up with Italian parents in Providence, Rhode Island during the Great Depression.  It also speaks to all mothers and daughters about the bonds that tie us forever, even when we are apart.  What I discovered is that I am more like my mother than I ever imagined, and that's a good thing.

The best thing about publishing this book is that it's given my mother incredible joy and pride as she approaches her 89th birthday this summer.  There is no such thing as an ordinary life!

From the Back Cover

My mother is the closest thing to God I know. Her God concept, whether she knows it or not, is that she cannot be fully known by just one name or one single entity. Not Dahlia, Zalia, Zat, Dale, Mrs. Testa, Gale, Ma, Grammy, Mimi - but someone other. Someone who serves as many beings to many people, revealing herself to each of us in ways that we can best appreciate and understand. After decades of indifference, self-indulgence, rebelliousness, embarrassment, and plain old apathy, I can finally say I truly appreciate my mother and her many pseudonyms. But I've never been able to understand her as well as a daughter should. She deserves understanding and to have her stories and memories chronicled. I hope I do them justice.
A gift for whatever they need
