Editorial Reviews


"...A.G. Russo does an outstanding job of bringing all the characters to life...The result is a story that vividly captures not just one key point in Italian history, but the immigrant experience and the roots of change...It is highly recommended reading for those who want in-depth history-based details paired with believable, moving characters' lives."
D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review 
"Only Our Destiny by A.G. Russo is an incredibly immersive fictional plunge into the human condition, laid bare in stark reality...without doubt a powerful read: one I would put up there with the best I have had the pleasure to experience."
Steven Robson for Reader's Favorite, 5 Stars 
"Because readers are led to care about the family, and their very close friends, right from the start of the novel, this becomes a story of courage and compassion in the face of hardship, not just a historical account...the biggest motivator of the story's aggressors is often poverty. This makes the villains believable, but makes the situations even more tragic."
Meg Stivison for Many books 
"Steeped in authenticity, rich descriptive language, and immersive story telling, Only Our Destiny by A.G. Russo is a transatlantic tale of persistence, family, and the dreams of freedom that fuel our lives... Surprising, eye-opening, and at times heartbreaking, Russo distills universal truths about loss and love in this compelling historical narrative."
Self-Publishing Review, 4½Stars
"The book is a masterpiece of historical truth. While we read about the past, indeed, it leads us to understand the future. Only very few novels have explored the vicissitudes of Southern Italy, Pandemic, Fascism, and Immigration with a so deepened way, creating a subtle historical bond between Italy and United States."
Advices books Book Reviews
"An emotional and riveting page-turner...Well written so that the reader feels the terror, frustration and hopelessness of each family member as they struggle to just survive."
The International Review of Books - Gold Badge
