Well done Franco and thank you for sharing your journey !
The author tells the story much in the style of my own Italian grandpa. I felt like I was there beside Little Franco as he grew up and beyond. I loved when he talked about how he felt, when he walked past the statue of Mary as he carried the box of money. (A little guilt can be a good thing.)
What a wonderful story of making it in America. As a second generation Italian American, I loved hearing similar stories from my parents and grandparents reggarding the family's struggles and accomplishments. God gave this author a special determination he used throughout his life. The book is an inspiration to all who read it...My son-in-law is enjoying the copy I gave him as a Christmas present.
I sat with my own daughter and together we read this beautifully written story. We felt every emotion and tears flowed with every victory that was won throughout and several times my daughter would say " Let's read that chapter again". It's a book about family, survival and the ultimate dream of believing in yourself and never giving up or giving in.
