“The Way of Beauty is a charming multi-generational love story, but it is more than that: it is a story of family, love lost, and love found…A loving tribute to the workers who risked their lives and health in building iconic structures in New York City…” —Historical Novel Society

About the Author
Camille Di Maio always dreamed of being a writer, and those dreams came to fruition with her bestselling debut novel, The Memory of Us, and her second novel, Before the Rain Falls. In addition to writing women’s fiction, she buys too many baked goods at farmers’ markets, unashamedly belts out Broadway tunes when the mood strikes, and regularly faces her fear of flying to indulge in her passion for travel.
She and her husband homeschool their four children and lead an award-winning real estate team in San Antonio, Texas. They split their time between Texas and Virginia. Connect with Camille at www.camilledimaio.com.

I still enjoy this author’s writing style and will absolutely read more of her work.
Di Maio has written a beautiful multi-generational story that will resonate within you for quite some time.
youth. The tie she had to the love she’d lived within those walls." THIS. THIS. When a sentence can touch and resonate like this, you just know you're going to fall in love with the story.
Camille Di Maio writes of dynamic characters Vera, Angelo, Pearl, Alice, William, and Emmett. Their vivid tale spans generations and centers on the textured history of Manhattan's Penn Station.
Di Maio does a fabulous job capturing the history, culture, and shifting roles of women in the era. The reader is taken on an emotional journey through their lives, witnessing firsthand the internal and external struggles that ultimately satisfy desires, dreams, and aspirations.
The Way of Beauty is two love stories. Both are beautiful. Both will tear you apart. Both will have you falling in love. And both will leave you a little bit richer.
For historical fiction fans, this book will not disappoint. It spans from 1900 - 1963 in the bustling, immigrant filled city of New York. I loved seeing the world of New York through the eyes of three strong female characters. The struggle of immigrant life, the strength of women suffragettes, the sacrifice of war - all of it was beautifully portrayed in Camille Di Maio's poetic writing. This was a book I truly struggled to put down. I will definitely be ordering and reading her other books asap!
