My new book out now – THE GODMOTHER

THE GODMOTHER

THE SICILIAN HOUSEWIFE DIARIES
Volume 1

The journal of an English woman handling parenthood, the Mafia and a Sicilian mother-in-law, all at once. (And yes, that is myself on the cover.)

‘The Godmother’, the first book in the series, introduces the formidable mother-in-law and godmother to seven children who dominates family life.

To understand Sicily’s present you need to understand her past. The author discusses, amongst other things, the Sicilian language, the role of women in Sicily and their portrayal in modern Italian media, the immigration crisis which began in Sicily in 2012, the fact Italians sell pasta for dogs, and some of the UNESCO world heritage sites that embellish the magnificent island of Sicily.

A passionate love of all things Sicilian combines with irreverent humour and a dangerously truthful way with words in this cultural and personal exploration of Sicily, past and present.

This anthology of articles was originally published online in 2012 but is now only available in print from all Amazon websites worldwide, and as an e-book (Kindle and other formats).

“Another amazing book by Veronica. She is so hilarious and informative, I would read anything she writes. Pure joy from cover to cover. I devoured it all in one day. If you don’t buy this book, you are missing out!”

AMAZON REVIEWER

 

“I whizzed through it. Very funny, witty and entertaining and it creates a vivid picture of the wonderful island of Sicily and its people, especially for those of us lucky enough to have visited.”

AMAZON REVIEWER

 

“The author comes across as reminiscent of The Terminator……A joy to read.”

  1. Having enjoyed your Posts on WP I shall definitely buy the book as the articles were so good, they deserve a second reading. And just in time for Christmas when I can switch off after lunch, leave the family to sleep off their over-eating, and head off to another room to settle down with your book and a fire.
