Editorial Reviews

Review

"Vincent B. "Chip" LoCoco's transports readers to small town Italy in his stunning new book A Song for Bellafortuna. The book is one part tribute to the beauty of Sicilian rural lands and one part suspenseful drama. . . an outstanding achievement by an Italian American with a passion for Sicily. The intriguing plot not only entertains readers but serves as a conduit to better understand rural life in Sicily."
-Primo Magazine

"I absolutely adored this book from cover to cover. Everything about it evoked small village Italy. The characters and events were completely believable, as well as memorable, and the book managed to provide me with a strong education in opera . . ."
-Historical Novel Society  

"Vincent B. LoCoco writes a heartwarming piece of historical fiction . . . The reader can see the colors, smell and taste the food and wine, and hear the music throughout the narrative. . . The ending was moving and I was left with a shiver and goosebumps. A Song For Bellafortuna is a beautiful tale of antiquity.
-Reader's Favorite 5 Star Review   
    
"We are overtaken by these characters and their village 'glistening in its golden glow from the setting sun.' Within these well-crafted pages we find beautiful descriptions of the Sicily and its people LoCoco clearly loves, and the seeds of hope available to all." 
-John Keahey: Author of Seeking Sicily and Hidden Tuscany
                                              
   
     
"The book was a joy to read. It is a wonderful story, told in a magical way." 
 -Cavaliere Ufficiale Aldo Mancusi, President of the Enrico Caruso Museum of America in New York

From the Inside Flap

"The author paints a picture of the era before motorcars, when agriculture provided the most employment. One gets the feeling of the slower pace of life. Journeys take longer. Distances feel greater. . .The author has a stylized voice, giving the book a fairytale feeling."
-Italophile Book Reviews   
                                                   
"Biographical Historical Fiction at it's best. The story revolves around the stunning Sicilian village of Bellafortuna. LoCoco does such a masterful job of developing the long history of this village, you feel so connected to the place at the end of the novel. This is an inspirational, important work. LoCoco's love of opera and storytelling shine through this Italian historical romance."
- Alberto di Foscantini                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  
"An inspiring story of a Sicilian village threatened by commerce and saved by opera." 
-John Biguenet, author of The Torturer's Apprentice and Oyster
