Truly this is one of those “do not judge the book by its cover.” The cover, for me at least, looks plain, a little lacking and something I would have passed over in a bookstore. But within these pages contains rich Italian languages and words that flowed so easily they were able to transport me to Italy in just a few short paragraphs. What a wonderful story of redemption, hope and faith amidst the destruction. Perhaps because of the recent devastation of Puerto Rico and seeing it in person after Hurricane Harvey, I could see the images so vividly. As a believer, all I could do during the storm was pray and my faith in God and His people continued to give me hope as I saw neighbors helping neighbors. God is there in the rubble. I was pulling for Giovanni  and hoped that I would read his testimony…..and Liz didn’t disappoint. It was beautiful and heartbreaking. I can’t wait to read both Giovanni  and Lucille’s continuing story! This was more than just a slow budding romance, more than a look at societal norms in the early 20th century, more than just a tragedy……this was what hope and faith reads like in the devastation of Messina.
